The timing belt covers on the 6cyl are the problem. It's a lot bigger at the back than the 4cyl engines, so you need to push it forward roughly 75-100mm to fit (a beetle) without extensive body modifications. I have a six out of the car and on a pallet, but I don't have a 4 out of the car currently to show the difference.

Steve - I'm curious on your modifications to move the trans forward. Are the details in your thread?
