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.
