I hear what you say, especially reading the reports on Andy Forrest's H6 in his time attack Impreza with way over 1000hp. Its extremely cool!
However... it is a watercooled 6-cylinder with OHC cams, which just weighs much, much more and hangs out even further behind the rear axle.

I short, driving dynamics will be far worse then an aircooled 4-banger with underlying cam behind you.
Handling is very underrated in the driving experience when all is said and done imho.
