Default Maybe

To clarify, I am not planning on it, mainly just curious.

Pretty sure it has never been done so no one is going to be able to tell you a price. It won't be cheap and there is going to be a lot of custom fabrication and things to figure out.

Oh boy Safe to say it will cost you more then you could sell the car for and plan on at least a year for a specialty shop to give you a final product with no guarantee it will be reliable and solid. A V8 swap on the other hand has been done numerous times, and there is a off the shelf mounting kit from Import Muscle that gets you at least 50% of the way there right out of the gate. Total install cost minus the few grand for the motor seems to be right around 10k conservatively. Its still a lot of fab work and tuning stuff.

Not to mention the same snowball effect that boost has on this car but even worse. Swap the engine you have to figure out a transmission solution. No way the OEM trans will hold the power so you try to use something else. Now the diff is a problem and making everything fit is also a problem. Custom driveshaft, axles, mounts, wiring, engine management, cooling, etc etc etc.

Probably shouldn't start a battle with Ricky, it typically doesn't end well for the other party.

No beef, I don't want to steal his props. Much respect to the OG.
