you may already know this but i wasn't sure considering all these parts people were trying to sell you

you don't have to change the k frame, you can even use the same engine mounts, all you need is the plate that bolts between the block and engine mounts, a complete motor and box, engine wiring loom and computer, not including the obvious exhaust etc etc

that being said i agree that buying a complete car is the best option

you should probable upgrade your springs to v8 spec because of the extra weight. with the 6cyl spring it will sit a bit low thats all i can think of that you need in the suspension

Are you saying that 6 cyl mounts can be used on the Windsor? I need new mounts, but the V8 ones cost $300/pair. Can you confirm this?

Thanks, Mike

mate, i got complete heads, cam, polished manifold, t/b that came off my car in complete working order. You can take the lot for $200. Also have a few other parts that i can chuck in eg. rockers, air intake pipe, fuel rail, injectors, gaskets. all you need is a bottom end, lifters, ignition system and youl practically have a new engine.

Get yourself a block for $100-200, and rebuild. You would want to rebuild any v8 you put in as the ones you will find will have high kms unless you pay good money. You can even get away with a cheap a** rebuild, by replacing piston rings only if block comes up good.

let me know if your keen on these parts.

yeah mate 95% sure i havnt seen it in person but from pics etc. they look the same. i have just put an EL k frame in an ED, when i was looking for a good frame to put in the i6's and v8's they all looked the same (frame and engine mount)
