Just a comment - the general consensus on engine swaps is you can do anything if you have the knowledge and the fabricating skills, the converse is also true - if you have to ask will xxxxxx engine fit, then you generally lack the skills to do it yourself.

My apologies for offending you by underestimating your abilities - good luck with your project.

By the way - try reading the page - they sell three different kits - the basic kit contains basically the engine mounts and crossmembers, etc - for people like you who already have the engine & transmission, but - feel free to reinvent the wheel. They also sell the individual pieces.

well if it were a honda yea sure i could do anything. ive never messed with 4 wheel drive cause ive been building front wheel drive, that gives you no reason to down on me.i thought forums were where you went to share or get information from each other to help you along the way in projects, troubleshooting or whatever. sorry i asked

Sounds a good option, yes.
From my own, I try to see every option, as being far from anything, shipping fees for any kind of kit will kill budget :(

May be a V8 3.8l from Range Rover can do the trick, but I must found what tranny to use, and how to wire/control the all thing.... :eek:
