Does anyone have enough knowledge on the new VE to know if its 3.6L motor would fit into a VX? If not, what would need to be modified eg. mechanical, electronically etc? Or is it just not possible in regard to space or positioning. What would one of these motors be worth off the shelf (ballpark figure). Would modifications be too expensive. Any advice is appreciated.

it should go in considering the vz is based on the vt/x/y/z platform and it has the alloytec.
not sure what would have to be modified though.

Thanks for the feedback. I put this question out there for my Dad, always dreamin' at the drawing board. Efficiency is a major issue for my Dad, however, as he is on a pension. Any more info on this subject?

Pick up a SC mag as Ben is doing that to project XXX. He is dropping a Alloytec into his VP.
