I see all these threads on swapping in various engines from various rigs.
To me they all have one common problem COMPLEXITY...
Computers and mud never made much sense to me.
Why not use the venerable 215 Buick design V-8 (available from rover)
Summit sells intakes , headers etc for them. The 5spd from a 2.8 S-10 will bolt up . Very light engine . Good power (for something as light as a Sammy)
The MGB guys have been doing this swap for years with amazing results....
Any body done this in the past?????
I'm considering This conversion on my 88....Boxcar...

Hi Boxcar,

search for rabbidrhino's posts (spelling?). He has a 3.5l in his Samurai.
I wanted to do it but decided against it due to emission-regulations in my country.

There is a very small 3-speed auto tranny by Borg Warner that fits perfectly. I cannot remember where it came from.

Good luck + best regards,

Norbert
