Hi,

Hope someone can help me!

Would a V8 of a Fairlane fit in a EL I6 or are there too many differences? I mean converting the whole thing. Or is it better to hang out for a donor EL V8?

Cheers in advance guys!

it will fit, you will need to swap ALOT of stuff from the V8 car into the 6 cylinder though, it isnt really a straight swap, fuel lines, wiring looms (all) power steering lines, a/c lines ALL different, it's not gonna be any easier waiting for a donor EL they are all pretty much the same. Everything will fit and bolt straight in, but alot of stuff needs to be swapped, good worthwhile conversion though.
