What do you do when a car's factory engine doesn't live up to the hype? Swap it out for something better, like forum member captainawesome did: “My faith in the fa20 has fallen on hard times, and instead of keeping the car with refreshed engine, I thought it would be better to start new."

That new project is a 2014 Scion FR-S in the same shade of white, just with a blown engine and an automatic transmission. This time around, the stock engine will be removed and replaced with a Honda K-series motor.

Keep tabs on the build thread here to see how captainawesome plans to overcome the challenges of replacing the automatic transmission with a manual one as well as how to get a front-wheel-drive engine to power the rear wheels of a car.
