Do you have a complete working motor? Then it'd be fairly easy, just get that zzp wiring kit, and the PCM setup i mentioned with a custom rom. You'll have a higher Gear Ratio then any SSEi, and you'll be lighter (if you're in an SE)
I don't wan't argue about this, but there'* no reason this isn't possible. No one'* attempted it because no one with this engine has thought it out before. They've all given up, or just bought a different car. Once you get it, you'd have a lighter car, and a better geared car then any SSEi.
GXP? C'mon, they pull a what, 15.5? I'm within .49 of that in the humble L27. Bigger/newer isn't always better.
