    sub frame costs 4000 to 5000 pound but with a bit of eldin an fabricatin we should make it fit to be honest two r1 engines would be too much hassel tryin to balance them out perfect and maintainin them especially if there on fuel injection

    a honda integra type R engine fits with some work and so does the 4wd system from a ford granada scorpio though you have to cut and reshape the main shell , my m8 did both these conversions and made a seriously effective hillclimb car , to have the engine fitted is about 4000 including engine , strengthening of chassis and all set-up , granada conversion was done by himself and some local engineering firm
