I would abandon the factory management and DI system as there isnt any possible way to attempt to carry that over w/o a headache that Id rather avoid. I would hope that the previous generation 2.5 with MPFI will bolt it. If that is the case, then Id just throw an MS3 on it and begin building the turbo manifolds.
I havent seen the amount of space there is to work with, but is the area around the headers rather constraining?
So the plan is:
custom exhaust/turbo manifold
no DI (plan on leaving the injectors in the head?)
likely custom intake manifold
standalone engine management
Calling the area around the headers "rather constraining" is an understatement.
As long as we are dreaming I suggest sourcing an engine from here:
Or better yet since you want something fast and unique, don't start with a 2IS. Find a smaller, lighter, RWD car that you like and source an engine from here: www.h1v8.com
