Sen a lot of interesting swaps, from Ferrari V12s in to street rods, toa supercharged 454 in a Cavalier, to a jag I6 into a Midget, to an Allison V16 into an Opel GT.

I love this one, a 478 CID Chrysler Hemi in an Austin healey Sprite:

And I also love V8s in FC RX7s... ;) perfect combination of reliable torque and hp in a perfect chassis for very little money.

Or how about a 27 litre V12 from a Meteor engine into a Rover SD1?

Yeah, that's a lot like the Allison engined Opel GT I saw on ebay a couple years back.

And the one in the '55 Chevy in Australia.

ahh yes, come to think of it i believe that i've seen an 8 second 323 hatch with a 20BTT in it, pushing something like 750hp and doin' some crazy times.. it's a manual though so it's got bad pick up and E/T's, i believe the owner is puttin' a Ford C4 in it with a highly worked short throw shifter kit.

I have a soft spot for the V8 Mini's and Micra's.

Wouldn't all that torque bend the hell out of the big tricycle and wouldn't it also snap the wheels in half?

Now THATS what i call a Big Wheel :laughing:

posted by  car_crazy89

i'd say that the hemi tric is just a normal toy tric with a fake plastic engine from a toy car with little alloy exhaust tips, lol.. looks mint though.

posted by  HyundaGuy

Nope, that's a real vehicle that somebody made: http://www.whatcanyouhemi.com/

JESUS CHRIST *eats hat*.. wow.. now that's scarey!

posted by  HyundaGuy

Thats some scary stuff, i guess a 'Hemi' is good in anything.

Ive seen some pretty awesome engine swaps around here at car shows. One guy had a 1994 Ford Escort GT with a blown 289 in it and a RWD conversion. :mrgreen: It was strange looking for a while because of that huge blower sticking out of the hood, but it grew on me!

posted by  SlipKnoT

Ive seen that before. Only around here its the Geo Tracker.

posted by  SlipKnoT

Ive never heard of that before :doh: It looks kind of stupid though. I know they have a motorcycle called the Y2K that uses a Rolls Royce helicoptor engine :drool:

posted by  SlipKnoT

that mr2 is a waste of money....steph papadakis has his civic hooked up with an nsx twin turbo engine...keep in mind his civic is RWD now thats a sik swap

posted by  niSMoFO

that could of been difficult and highly expensive, i'd prefer to chuck an NSX engine into an S2000.
