Yeah but there is more room in the engine bay. The G16 almost looks weird in there by itself.
Compared to most modern FWD based compact cars, the Corolla's engine bay is already on the more spacious side. Yes, it also kinda means it's interior wouldn't be quite as spacious as it could've been, but at least it makes it easier to work on the things under the hood.

True, I just hate it when the exhaust side of the engine is near the firewall.. I prefer it towards the front of the car like the Honda B series and the 4G63t. I mean I get it, with the exhaust side facing the rear of the car, the exhaust routing is less restrictive, but I'll sacrifice a slightly more restrictive exhaust route vs the reach and countless bloody knuckles you get from swapping a turbo near the firewall.

Thank God. This thing looks easy to wrench on, which I'm looking forward to. My Focus ST isn't that bad, but it's a little cramped in there.
