Yes.... mad as it sounds!

Where the front wheels are compared to the engine .. I'd have thought it'd be a very difficult job.

The G'box is set a long way back compared.

With 4WD I'd look into how it's done in the GT4, Evos and scoobies .. would have thought you'd need to rotate the engine 90deg.

The honda master technician that installed my comptech seems to think its possible due to the layout/design of the sump area?

(im just repeating info here so don't flame me!)

I'd just buy an New style Audi TT and up the boost

Maybe you could get a sideways mounted engine and gearbox from an FWD car in the front, and have another one in the boot.

My first question is... why?

I don't think a twin engined would be the most practical solution.

But has it been done ever?

I think i'll ask the crazy ones over the pond in there domain !

You might be able to transplant in a Skyline GTR bellhousing, box, transfer case and front diff.

Dunno what you'd bolt the diff to, though.

The transfer case ought to fit in the cat bulge, so the exhaust might be a problem.

Good luck, Jim.
