Engine swaps-what do you like?and where would you put it?


#81

8.4L V10 out of a Dodge Viper, tuned by Hennessey, then crammed into a Gremlin.

Or…

Failing that, a simple upgraded carburetor will do.


#82

Toyota Celica + inline 5 (reinforced internals) + mid mounts + custom gearbox + ground clearance =


Just better, more in this style


#83

LS1 into trash can or anything with 2 or more wheels…Lord I hate ls engine swaps

but 350chev into motorbike frame… fuck yeah


#84

I’d be a little more boring. Either the Turbo I4 or the V6 from the Hyundai Tiburon (with 6-speed gearbox) into my '05 Elantra.

Alternatively… If I had a crapload of money to throw around, Mitsubishi 4G63 Turbo from the Lancer Evolution into something like a Mitsubishi Galant, along with the Evo’s gearbox and driveline.

Or, Chevy 350 into some small Chevy 4-door sedan. (Sorry, I don’t know a lot of modern cars. I haven’t been looking because I’m comfortable with the Elantra. I just wish it had more power at times.)

How about Mazda 13B into Toyota MR2? I always thought that a lightweight, mid-engined rotary would be pretty cool.


#89

That sounds like it’d be awesomely fun, actually.


#90

Thats brilliant!


#91

You could also shoehorn the 10A into a keicar


#92

Honda S660? :smiley:


#93

that’s what I had in mind, :wink:

#95

427 SOHC maybe, 9000rpm screamer.:smiling_imp:


#96

Engine/gearbox from 3000GT in a Galant. Omm,nom,nom.:slight_smile:

I had my first non-Nissan idea in litteral years.

A Lincoln Continental Mark V (or IV or VI) with a Ford 3-valve 6.8L V10 (built after 2008).
Besides the engine… a lot of suspension work. Amerifloat be gone!
Another idea for that car is a diesel… the 7.3L Power Stroke being the most reasonable candidate, albeit with underwhelming performance, and even more weight. I want it with a manual transmission.

I’m not usually interested in American cars… but this idea appealed to me greatly. What a tank that thing will be…


#98

That would be amazing (in a fox body Mustang)!


#99

Just thought of another one. Swapping the Miami v8 from my xr8 sprint and putting it in place of the coyote in a mustang
mmmmmm 420rwkw at the wheels with over boost
