Share insane motor swaps

The thread about hotwiring that just got locked had meandered onto the Festiva. This reminded me of a Festiva that someone had transplanted a Taurus SHO engine into and mid mounted.

woooooohooooooo mid mounted insanity

So I say heres a thread to post all the wacky, fun, off the wall, over the top engine swaps or rigged up cars that you have come across in your life or your internet wonderings. I almost want to exclude the focus v8 swaps becuase we are pretty familiar with those. but i'll leave it at the posters discretion.

The Mustang is mine, it has a BBF in it. I did most of the fab work to get the sbc into the 944. The BMW has a Caddy 500 in it, and the CRX has a 350. Alll these cars ran at the Grassroots Motorsports $200x Challenge with the Fastiva. Bill had a 383 powered Fiero there last year, but was a no-show this time around. The Corvaire had a 327 in the back seat. I've seen that Chevy before. That's way cool!

There's a car in the new Focus Fanatic magazine with a SHO mid-engine swap...

Pretty cool, although I have no links to it or anything.
