    First off, having two nuts if overrated. Just ask the spokesman for Subaru

    As far as being effective, I think it'll be very effective on getting good numbers.

    Did you not read my last post? An LS2 will NOT fit inside an STi. The STi's engine is 150 cubic inches to the LS2's 327.

    LS2 is ~364 cubic inches.....in case you were wondering?
    5.3L would be ~323 cubic inches
    LS1 is 346 cubic inches
    LS7 is ~426
    60.8 x liters = cubic inches.

    Sorry had to point that out....

    Also does anyone know what an STi engine actullay weighs fully dressed?
    I know an LS6 weighs 458 pounds FULLY dressed including cast iron manifolds(13lbs) Clutch and flywheel assembly (49lbs). That also includes being fully oiled. I'm sure the STi motor is a bit less, but 400hp/400ftlbs of torque would definatley make up for the wieght diffrence.

    But wouldn't modding the STi make more sense and be one HELL of alot easier than swapping in an LS2 (IF it fit..)?

    I don't know how much STi engine weighs but LS2 is an aluminum block and is pretty light, as stated it only weighs ~450 lbs. So, unless STi engine weighs far less than that, it shouldn't have much of bearing on overall weight of the vehicle. Now, getting it to fit into engine bay of STi is whole another issue.

    If it was a six speed (300C SRT-8), I'd be all over it like a fat kid on a cupcake

    That's exactly what I'm thinking. GS Motorsports picked up 123rwhp with their Paxton kit, at only 6psi, on a stock 5.7 Hemi. Can't wait to see what it'll do on the 6.1 Hemi

    Glad we have an authority in here who has tried this.

    FYI...cubic inches is not too relative to engine size with modern build engineering. IMO, with a modified hood, the LS2 would actually fit. About the same width, a little longer...it's the height that might be an issue. Regardless though...modding would be a much cheaper and less knuckle busting event.

    Exactly. I know LS1 427 CID will fit inside of LS1 347 CID F-Body.
