True.Zrain said:You see the Shelby Cobra is considerd a Mid Engine car, given the fact that the mottor is so far back from the front axel, and the driver is practicly imbetween the Rear Axels.
False.Zrain said:....Rear axel is such that the rearend deals with a vastmajority of the Drive train's wheght. while in a TRUE. Mid engine car, the disterbushon is close to 50/50....
The MR2s engine is in no way shape or form ABOVE the tranny. It is directly next to it.Zrain said:in an MR2 the Mottor is above the Trany. infact the block counter balance's the transaxle.

I would love to see this, but I think the Mini will be too narrow for such a project. You may be better off finding an engine/tranny that are in line front-to-back rather than side-to-side.Trefmawr said:To answer your question MRQ, and please don't laugh, I'm putting a toyota turbo engine in my mini (1988 Austin Mini 1000).
