I've heard stories of pure lunacy when some people shoehorn a RB26DETT(Skyline engine) between the fender wells!

For me,a Dodge Dart R/T or Rallye would work. I test drove one this past Saturday while my Abarth was getting an oil change. Surprisingly very quiet and one of the smoothest 6-spd manual transmission I have ever driven. Usually the 6-spds I've driven the gear ratios are spaced where if you're not careful,you could downshift into the wrong gear. That wasn't the case here,the shift action was near Honda quality. Granted the Multiair Turbo engine could use a little more grunt on the bottom end but still I was impressed. I can only imagine how the SRT version will turn out.
