240's are overrated now lol ... hmm ... I wonder if a bluebird swap would be possible in a Yaris. This way you dont have to worry about the RWD conversion.

maybe, but I've had a fascination with 240s (specifically the s13 hatches) since i was a kid, i don't know what drew me to them, but i've loved them since I saw one when i was about 7 or 8

ooh that would be cool. I want to try a Silvertop from an AE101 Corolla into a Yaris. Nothing like ITB's and 10k rpms.

Had two hatches myself and always changed my choice of powerhouse because by the time I was ready, it was already becoming the fad. I got my 1st S13 when they were still a rare car to work on .. then the drift craze came to America and I still stuck with it for several more years and even getting a second one .... I ended up going all motor to prove some numbers without breaking bank. With tuning .. I pulled numbers of the SR20 with an NA KADE at under the price of getting the whole complete swap.

www.hincity.com/treyz .. check out my garage

Only reason why I got rid of them is because everyone and their mother has one now lol ... and its hard to find a clean shell these days up north. If I go back to it .. I'd be looking ot do a S13 convertible project. Unless My negotiations for an S15 from some old friends that import goes well.

Another cool part is that the turbo setup would be up front since the exhaust manifold is right there unlike ours where it's facing the firewall.
