Default Ferrari 458 ENGINE SWAPPED S2000?

Theres been so many countless swaps that people have done to the s2000, v8 swaps, 2jz swaps, v10 swaps. I came across an interesting article on one who has went a complete different route and is on the process putting a 458 swap into a toyota 86. http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-cult...n-a-toyota-86/
Is there honestly a way to put this motor into an S2000. And if so what transmission would be needed?

Would be better off with a 2JZ for the money and power.

Ryan Turek also has an endless supply of money, people and sponsors.

Good luck.

Sounds insane... I guess just because, I'd like to see it done right but then again, I'm fully satisfied with the legendary F20 made for the S2000.

FWIW, apart from the amazing 2JZ powerplant, I could see a 1JZ suiting the S2K quite well and being less costly than a 2JZ.

I just want to see a coyote 5.0 engine swap into an S2000. High revving(to 8,000 with intake manifold) and makes tons of power and torque while still being a fun high revving motor.

I'd rather put one of these engines in an S2K or FRS/86. 10.5k redline and lightweight...

You'd mate whichever trans you'd like to. You'd either have a custom one made...or find one with advantageous gear ratios and use it with a necessary adapter.

Its the same as any motor swap.

Find money. Find an engine. Fab it in. Adapt the trans. Wire in a brain to run it.

I'd just like to put the new Civic Type-R engine in the S. Some adaptive dampers maybe, on coil overs. An electronic locking differential in the rear. I love this car but it's decidedly low tech, I wonder what the geeks at Honda could come up with today, keeping it around $45,000. Maybe a coupe with just a little more interior room, same roadster shape, keep the x frame chassis with the engine pushed back, make it a bit lighter with some aluminum here and there. A little stiffer chassis, a bit more safe, but still light weight under 3,000 lbs. Maybe widen the track a bit to allow wider wheels.
