Engine swaps

Post by maseratiguy » Thu Mar 05, 2015 10:17 pm

I'm not normally a fan of changing the "heart" of a car, but I am curious if anyone has ever swapped a Dino motor into say a 124 coupe? How about a 131 Brava?
Thanks,
Chris

i don't think many on the forum are big fans either.
me on the other hand have no problem..
I have an 850 spider with a high output vw 1800cc mill in it.
also had a 124 spider with a buick V6 mounted up..
ive seen ford v8's installed in 124 spiders and coupes, but I think they are just too heavy.

Dino motor is kinda pricey, perhaps an Alfa V6 from a GVT or Milano would be less costly (and make more power).

fun, but intensive projects...
71' 850 with (1.8L)
58? abarth 750
81' 124 (3.0L)
