Nope, not easily.

The H-swap can be done in a CRX... this engine is like a K24A2... shoe horn city.

I think the engine would have a hard time fitting in there... the length of the engine is about the same width as the truckster LOL.

I could mount it in the bed w/ a 90* jackshaft connecting it to the tranny, though.

Since I'm going to Owego this weekend to get a full '92 F150 drivetrain for $100, including a 5 speed OD transmission, I might make a little project or something. We'll see.

For posterity, where's the closest 360 or similar vehicle that you know of to PA?

Not very close, the easiest to find are the 360 sedans but as I said you would have to have the motor stick out the arse of the car like the ugly v8 volkswagon up the way, that and he moved the axle back and has bigger tires.

I will poke the group, it seems the so called "project" trucks and vans don't get listed as much as the ready to drive

Oofda, look at this

Good Luck

I wish I had the money... I think I'll stick with a one-off setup, honestly.

I'm getting a F-150 OD trans this weekend, I'm probably gonna pull the gearbox from it and use it w/ the diesel engine, not sure from there..

You probably do, normally these sell cheaply but all the recent pickups are bought apparently, a fully functional clean 69 sold a month ago for $1500 and I have seen many fixer uppers for $500ish

Market is devoid of them at the moment.

I will let you know if a cheapy is nearby should one pop up.

I do see there are a lot more vans and cars than pickups though if they work, think Mystery Van.

Cheers
Ryan
