Subaru 1.8 into a zuki.....?

My dad and I came up with this idea a while back and thought it would be pretty cool if it will work.

Has anyone ever put an old Subaru 1.8 carbed boxer engine into a zuk? Figured maybe a guy could use the subaru 4 speed tranny with the t case and leave the zuk t case in the rig for like a doubler setup....just take the CV's off the tranny and use the rear output.

Sorry if its been covered but did a quick search and could only find people using subaru master cylinders and stuff....

Don't know why anyone would swap in a carb'd motor.

The subie boxer engines are too wide to fit in between the stock frame rails. Obviously not an issue on BillJ's rig but you'd have a ridiculously high COG using a stock frame.

only reason to use pancake motors is if you aren't puting them in between your front wheels and you don't have a lot of overhead clearance. That's why they use them in a lot of rear and mid mounted applications. Put the fuel tank up front and Mount the engine behind the driver seat... that would be interesting for baja racing, but rock crawling would be bad.... you'd be on your back most of the time.
