And I still remember the neighbor who stuffed a 283 into a Metropolitan. That wasn't a dream, it was a nightmare.

Yeah we used to stuff em in all kinds of tin cans .
My favorite was the Honda CRX with a V8 in the Rear .
Camaro's were the Best for drifting and driving in circles .
Now I just got Old !

OP should be dreaming about a Turbo V6 .

That would be completely undrivable.

I think Volvos 300 hp super/turbocharged 2.0 4 would be a good match for the Cruze. Lighter than the old I5 engines by a lot, and more fuel thrifty. I wouldn't want anything over 300 in a FWD car, or anything heavier than a 4 in the front of one this small - you lose all cornering ability whatsoever.

79 Mercedes 300D with an LSA swap out of a current generation CTS-V. IRS rear from a C6 vette. I would however go automatic to keep the easy drivability. I'd also throw the quietest exhaust I could find on it to keep people from knowing till I wanted. Stock wheels and ride height however I'd stiffen the spring rate up and build some custom strut braces, that way it doesn't handle like a complete pig. Upgraded and modern braking system.
