Default Ultimate Engine Swap

Anyone willing to hazard a guess at Power/Weight & Power/Torque ratios?

Is the rest of the car used as a fuel tank?

reading your post

Seriously, the car would not be capable of traveling short distances on the stock fuel tank if such an engine swap was really carried out.

it looks more like dropped than swapped, from the background it looks like a junkyard.

this one is certainly dropped and at the scrapyard where we have this possibility. The car tyres would have bursted / rims bend and suspension breaking in moments after the pics was taken.
