    td5 transplant

    I was just wondering if it is possible to run a td5 in another vehicle ? I have an early series 2a with a holden engine ,I also have a good td5 sitting in a wreck in my yard and was wondering if it would be possible to use it in the 2a . I am thinking if it is possible to remap the ecu to run the engine only ?

    Is the donor auto or manual?
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    All can be done, a lot of guys oversees are running standalone in cars of various guises, although I strongly doubt the 2a front end would be strong enough to take the weight of the td5, but I could be wrong, I guess the Holden weighs a bit.
    Either way it would be a huge task!

    A few years ago I sold an R380 box and pedal set to a fella who wanted it for his 3rd td5 conversion into series Landy's so can definitely be done .
    Would be a great power to weight ratio

    I dont think the front end would be to much of a problem the holden is lighter than the 2.25 engine ,they are a heavy engine and with leaf springs it is easy enough to beef them up .As far as being a huge task I have a shed full of them ,it is only a matter of picking which one .

    hi folks.
    for what its worth , i have a td5 engine with an "amc" head in my parts car . no auto box / lt230 . all i had to do to get it running was plug in spare xyz switch which was set to "p" and fit a spare bell housing to carry the crank sensor. i run it up every month to keep things sweet. pete.

    That section will have to be edited in the ECU, assuming you're not transplanting an auto with the engine.

    Just found a video on you tube from dixion fabrications UK , getting the engine to run would be the easy part . Without running the tape over the transmission I dont think it would fit into the swb mainly bacause it has a salsbury diff fitted and the tail shaft is only about 12 inches long
