Anybody know of any FiST drivetrains swapped into other builds?

I'm about to have a spare engine/transmission/subframe/ECU/dash cluster/column, etc and I was wondering if anybody has seen the FiST setup swapped into an older vehicle or a dune runner or a kit car. Just thinking before I go selling off what I don't need... lol

drop one in a Fiat X1/9.
WHOA, talk about way back time machine.....I haven't heard that name in quite a while.

The Fiat X1/9 was a two-seater mid-engined sports car designed by Bertone and manufactured by Fiat from 1972–1982 and subsequently by Bertone from 1982–1989.

yes it was . lol and it was lightweight and handled like a bat out of hell. Another car would be a Lotus Exige, or First gen MR2 AW11

With the cornering g's those things can generate with sticky tires, they NEED that optional dry sump kit!
Yeah... wish they were easier to obtain and register state side.

Also, I didn't realize they were designed to fit Ford 1.6 and 2.0 liter four bangers to begin with. Maybe not as difficult a swap as I thought.

The actual Caterhams were using the GM/Opel/Vauxhall sourced Ecotec 2.0 liters in the recent past.
I don't know what they are using currently.

According to their website, the current models use a Ford 1.6 Sigma or a 2.0 Duratec. The most insane model slaps a supercharger to the 2.0 and cranks out over 300 hp.
