There was a thread on an ebay car like this not too long ago. Try : Another ebay 911 to review

It's not a bad idea, if you're alright with a water-pumper. Since it's mostly a personal opinion question, I'll let you know what I think -- Subaru makes a good engine. They're no cheaper to operate on than Porsche engines, and not (in my limited experience) all that much more reliable. It has just as low of a COG, and operates just about as efficiently. It's really a toss-up, in my book. If the extra power is worth it to you, and the project would be fun, and you have the funding, go for it.

End soap-box rant, and I'm $.02 poorer, for what that's worth. One other note -- try a search on this board for "subaru." Might return something of value. Good luck to ya, let us know what you decide.
