So my cuz has a built out 2.0 gas engine that he says hes put about 2500 into but doesnt need/want it anymore and would sell it to me for 1000. My biggest questions are:

1. Will it work
2. Will it fit
3. does anyone make somthing that i can use to bolt the engine to the transmission
4. If im going to do the 2.5" exhaust, would this be the time to doit

Has anyone ever seen a conversion like this?

Why 2.5 " exhaust? that's too big even the turbo motor don't run that big
ya, i typed 2.5" but i meant 2. everything ive read has said 2.5 is too big, brain fart for typin it.

has anyone heard of or dealt with Kennedy Engineered Products? i was suggested to look at them in addition to ACME

Depending on tire size gearing and some other factors you may want to.

Personally yes, im running toyota axles in my zuki and i beat mine like a redheaded step child with no problems, its kinda like puting one ton stuff under your half ton. You may be fine with the smaller stuff but it gives you a little added saftey net.

thats kinda what i thought. it'll drain my budget but the peace of mind would prolly be worth it.

any chance someone would know the weight of f/r 82 toy truck axles?

found a pair in MS for the right price but got a $631 quote to ship em to me (their store to their store) with them weighing 500 together. Making a good deal not so good
