So any Ideas on where to start for the bits and if it will be able to be engineered before I start in earnest looking for an engineer to guide us through it?
We've already been looking at a Commodore V6 conversion or getting a reco engine but in passing today he mentioned that he would like a V8 and then went on to say LS1 would be great.
I don't think the physical size would be to bigger problem as a 308 fits into the old 4 cyl engine bays ok and the V6 Jacks are wider, it's more if there will be a conversion kit available or will I have to spend months chasing up parts and fitting and re fitting etc etc.
Anyone else (In Victoria) game to take it on, I'm not married to the idea and I would happily pass it onto someone else for a small but reasonable finders fee at the end?
What's his budget? And timeline?, I could maybe squeeze another ls conversion in
