Let me tell you why it won't work. First the Motor is too wide. S has 27.5 inch frame rails and towers. The frs has low slung rails and tapered towers making the bay much wider. Secondly the trans will be a shit show for your tunnel and pedal box. Thirdly it is a pretty shit motor for that kind of money.

Forget this fantasy and keep the f20 and turbo it, or swap in a LS. I won't suggest a 2JZ since that is a lateral move at best with all the sub 8 second S2ks floating around with the F20c. The 2jz requires a custom k member, more steering relocation than the lsx, and serious trans Magic if you don't want to go auto.

My current 416 cubic inch motor just dynoed 544 hp to the wheels, while the 458 makes 430ish to the wheels. It is also lighter than a coyote, or the 458 blocks.

WTF @ the manifolds lol. Vanity swaps always confuse me but hey each to their own, will sound great and go pretty good

I'd rather put a 800hp NA 440-502 LS based swap in for that $ and call it a day. Lighter and moar powers.
