crazy motor swaps

Has anyone thought of ever doing a crazy motor swap in a 3? Swaps like awd 4g63 or fj25 or any type of Honda motor, maybe even a red conversion using sr20s or rbs and 2jz or 1jz engines or stuff some sbc or sbf v8s. How about something even more crazy like an mr setup with an engine in the rear?
Just wondering if anyone thinks like I do lol!

Plenty of people have given it thought.

But no one in the right mind would waste that much money on as cruddy of a base as the 3 is lol. If you have money like that, it's better spent elsewhere (seriously).

People do crazy motor swap all the time on econo boxes. I personally find no use for it but some do it just for the challenge. The other day actually, Jalopnik had an article about some guy in Quebec putting a Maserati motor in a Miata. Again - kind of senseless to me. I'd sooner spend that money elsewhere and buy a car much nicer than a Miata to begin with.

At the end of the day - different strokes for different folks I suppose Whatever floats your boat right!?
