      I hope that engine is heavily modded... Most stock Harley V-Twins put out less HP than a stock Festiva.

      well probably around about the same hp but with more than likely more torque. its an odd choice though for that car but its definitely unique

      Yes, but if you make it fit one Harley engine, it fits most of them, meaning you can put one of those big inch motors that they use in all the custom stuff in there that make respectable power. The rest of a Festiva drivetrain can only take so much too.
      It may be slow, but at least it's ugly!

      You would replace a Porsche flat-6 with a Subie flat-4?

      Porsche 914s are slow flat 4s. the 914-6 had a 6-cylinder and is rarer. So if anyone would do that, a basic 914 would probably be sacrificed.

      Ok, I'm not normally one to call blasphemy... but... 2000gt's are so rarely seen, I'm hoping this one was in pretty bad shape before this happened.

      Holy crap, yeah...
      Only 337 cars made....
      Its not like the stock Yamaha inline 6 is a bad engine either...

      Sorry, in some internet circles they were calling the Toyota Sports 800, the Toyota S800. My mistake.

      That is in my top 5 of odd swaps...I can't tell whether I'm looking at the front "trunk" or the back engine bay?!?

      Ive seen this car in person and by far the engine is not the only thing that is nice. The brakes and interior make make melt.

      most of you guys have outdone me on the outrageous tip... however this was my daily driver for 4 years, 2.5 of which were in colorado above 7000'. tough as nails, reliable, and not as hard to handle in the snow & ice as i would have thought.
      1970 Pontiac LeMans Sport, some GTO body stuff, and a .060 overbore Chevy BB 468ci custom engine, etc. etc.. sorry no bay shots!

      was wonderin if anyone caught that. dont bastardize a 914/6. do it to a regular 914.
      914-no flares. 4 lug. 1.7,1.8 or 2.0 flat 4
      914/6-flared. 5 lug and porsche flat 6. very rare

      Looking at those Swaps in the Saabs makes me wonder what the front engine, front wheel drive Saab 99 with the Stag V-8 would have been like. They only made 48 of them, and I have never even seen a picture...

      Probably a deathly amount of torque steer. The Viggen was too much power for the 9-3 to handle.
      If you have more information about aforementioned Saab 99, I would love to hear it. I never heard of this beast of a Saab, and I do love Saabs.

      I think the engine in this Volvo is a newer model Volvo engine. I am just mostly impressed with the sick ITB/Turbo setup.
