I have a friend that has been working on modifying the Prius inverter. These transmissions would make a clean conversion for most front wheel drive applications. I think having a generic controller that would work with them would be ideal.
There is a simple modification that will join the two motors together and allow about 75hp with a peak hp of about 90.
