Does anyone have a V8 engine they're willing to sell to me?
I'm pretty pov, so can't spend too much on it unfortunately :(

what V8 would bolt straight into my ZK Fairlane?
Looked at Pick N Payless out at Blacktown, engines there looked a little sad, but still potential there....

You'd be better off dropping a Clevo in, you're probably better off buying a whole car though, find a s**t with good mechanicals and that way you have every bracket, part, nut and bolt for the conversion.

That'd be a good plan, although I don't have too much space to have another car sitting around, or a garage to work in, I just need to get a motor, let it sit in me shed, then plunk it in over a weekend, then hook all the vitals up another weekend & a few arvo's.

Any ideas on wreckers or anything that'd sell a decent clevo? Also manual box, realllllllyyyyy want a manual!

My bloody fairlane weighs 1.6t so at the moment on the breaks doesn't work too well, or rather, not at all! Need to hook it something savage, but then I need like 4 lanes to get sideways in! Damn monster of a thing!
