everything u would need to do the conversion plus a complete car. im looking for 7000 for it.

the engine has had a bit of work and has done about 30,000kms since a full rebuild, most parts brand new.

you should be able to do it with $1500 but you be stretching it.

a good second hand motor will set you back around $1000 maybe best to get a donor car with rear end damage so that you have all the parts you need

I converted my EA wagon to V8, i picked up a NL Concorde V8 for $2k with stuffed paint. I'd deffinately recommend getting a wreck so you've got the little things along the way.

its an easy job though.

I have a stock 5L lying around that I have been thinking of getting rid of. It's in storage on Melbourne's west side.
