dunno about courier but i saw a hilux tray back with an l67 in it so it should be possible. I suppose custom engine mount is going to be the main issue good luck will make a mean burnout car

boilermaker like me then huh well your set then. Yeah sump might be an issue depends only where crossmember is how far forward or back you have to mount it.
Wiring i dont think is too hard theres the engien loom with only really two plugs to wire up most are power and ignition with a few diagrams, a few hours and half a brain you should be able to get it running

There's a couple V6 powered van's around here. You get quite the shock seeing some old van rock up at the drags and mixing it with the V6 boys :) and enter the burnout comps
