hi all just wondering what's involved with doing the engine swap above. I got a mate who's written his car off and will sell it to me cheep it's a vy sv8.
what's involved in doing an engine swap into my vz? i have the 3.6l alloytech
id check with your states requirerments, pretty sure u cant put an older engine into a newer car due to emmissions regulations
New motor into old car is fine of course.
You'd be changing lots, pedal box, tranny, suspension, brakes, computer, wiring.
only worth it if its DIRT cheap and u have the time to do it all by yourself. imho
That said, it's not a conversion I'd contemplate - just buy a factory V8 one. There are plenty about.
