Anyone ever reverse the trans and run a waterpumper without cutting into the rear seat?

Toyota van engine with subaru transaxle. Its just a thought. Might fit with just removing the heater box. Just trying to start a conversation and stay in a positive mood. Its been a terrible month.

Or a rotary, but that would be a headache for a million other reasons.

Paul McCreery run an LS-1 into a Porsche transaxle with the engine in the rear. Both the engine and transmission rotate in their normal directions. I believe Chance Parker does the same.

That Toyota engine is one heavy large lump. On the plus you could install the oil fill bottle under the hood for automatic oil top off’s.

I don't know about direction of rotation but the new Honda Goldwing 1.8 L flat 6 is about the same size, weight and puts out 125hp. You would get liquid cooling and Honda reliability. They should be available in wrecking yards.
It would make an interesting project that would be a nice upgrade
Since no one mentioned a non automobile engine I thought someone should.
If you want to go fast use two Hayabusa engines. That would give you about 394 hp in the same space. With liquid cooling and reliability.
