it's a lot of work, i think the gearbox will need new front mount fabricating, you will need to change to IRS while you are there, for that i'd sugest going porsche 944
i have a type 4 motor in my chickensplit although it's not run aenough to know if the cooling will be an issue
jinx has a 2ltr type 4 motor in his split bus, he reckons get hot and, he's cut out the engine lid to get airflow into the motor

Got a Porsche 901 5-speed in my bus with a Legacy 2.2 scooby conversion. It runs 944 rear IRS and is great. Well worth the effort but it took a long time to get it done. Would have been done sooner but I didnt want to get a bank loan ;)
