    We all knew it was only a matter of time that the LS lovers, would grab a Subaru BRZ and rip its heart out and replace it with a light weight alloy LS2 engine.

    The guys at Weapons Grade Performance appear to be the first to attempt it.



    I know allot of you boxer haters would love seeing this pic...







    Once this build is complete and bedded it, it should still be a fun car to drive with heaps more torque and power than the original boxer engine that was removed.

    I remember thinking about how wide the bay was when I first looked in a standard car... I guess sooner or later LSxs and Rotors end up in EVERYTHING!...
