    I'm thinking about building a 7 clone for d mod. I'm frying to figure out what engine would be a good option to use. I'd like to find something that makes decent power without a full race build. Obviously weight is also important and the ability to mate up to a rwd transmission. What do people suggest? I'm pretty open at this point.

    You'd need to build/have built a trans adapter plate for the K20. I run a T40 trans from an 80's Corolla in mine. The S2000 motor doesn't have that problem but the Honda motors are a little on the tall side. The Duratec also has easier trans options, Mark would be a good resource to talk to about those.

    I don't think there are any direct bolt on options for a RWD transmission.  If you can find one, the F20 (early S2000) engine is already setup for RWD and makes more power stock than a K20.

    Sure. You want to pay 2-3x for the same power and less reliability vs. a stock F20?

    I know what the stock F20 and K20 power plants can do than a stock 4AGE. I am just a die hard Toyota Guy.

    This may not be the best trans/adapter option, but it exists.
