      Not terribly exciting but I really want to do a turbo BEAMS 3S + 6-speed into an RA65/SA63 Celica coupe. Not the liftback, the extra ugly coupe you hardly see any more. I'm torn between keeping it beige on stock rims or turning it into a faux Group B car.

      Yes it's silly and would be the ugliest car on the road but it would put a grin on my face! :D

          Mercedes M275 into a R171 or R172 SLK
          Or even an M113K engine.

            VQ37 into my RX8 when it dies.
            Or anything other than an LS so it can still rev and remain manual

              Last model Toyota Celica into a same year Yaris. I don't know why, maybe I'm broken but too much power through the front sounds like a blast.
              351 Windsor, power rack etc I have spare in the shed into an 65 Mustang hardtop. I blame the fact that I have the parts spare and whomever did the Hoonicorn..
              Late model GM V8 into a 74 (cos no drip rails!) C10 or similar, heck I wanna do a RWD pickup of some sorts with late model powers. It's been a long time dream.

                      If I had unlimited money I'd put a Tesla P100D drivetrain/chassis underneath a 65 Nova Wagon body, big tubs, fat tyres, patina, roof rack.
                      Hide yo' wife!!!

                            Gemini with an Isuzu 3.0 litre turbo diesel 4jj1 engine for something a bit different.
                            Or the same engine in a HQ-Z Panel van for touring Australia.

                              This but a VK Group A Replica.

                              Also wanted to do an EV conversion on an E30 convertible.

                                I fizz about replacing Subaru flat fours and sixes with Mazda Rotaries...

                                GC8 WRX EJ20 repaced with 13B Turbo
                                Liberty EZ30 replaced with 20B Turbo

                                All with the strong 6sp of course.

                                There's just something about an AWD driveline with boosted rotor goodness that just feels like coke and hookers to me.
