    There was a PAN Atlantic 1st gen 3sgte that i was gonna buy from a guy , its slightly less poweful than the Toyota of Alantic motor but its got some balls they make it in japan then ship it to germany to tune it then back to the US thats why its the PAN Atlantic is what i was told, they used it in Baja Racing for like 3 years. The motor i was gonna buy was 14k and it came with everything and it had never been installed it was still on a pallet with a shipping tag from 1994 on it. If i could have bought it right then and there i would have but when i sell my 5th gen i might just save the money from it and go buy it.

    im not really sure i know its lest the T.A. Motor but i've heard its got more "Umph" to it. It looks like a badass motor though. Im guessing 250-275whp

    there's a big difference between a FR type transmission and MR type transmission.

    the basics boil down to this...

    an MR transmission is BASICALLY a FF transmission with the gear selectors on the opposite side. these transmissions are mounted in the 'transverse' orientation.

    FR transmissions follow the path of the center driveline shaft towards to rear differential. longitudinal mounting as its called.

    so, no. there is no 'easy' way to change an MR transmission into FR style... lots of fab work.
