The bottom line is that ANYTHING can be done if you really want to do it ...
there's a Saab 96 running around town that has an 1100cc Kawasaki motorcycle
engine under the hood and four exhaust pipes running forward out through the
grill then under the car ... looks pretty bizarre, to say the least. 

BTW, if you look carefully, you'll notice the gearbox in a 944 is about four
feet aft of the engine and there's a torque tube between them ... unless you
plan to put the V8 in the middle of the car, the only adapter you need is up
