I have been looking for a 2.8 litre v6 to put in a Vega. I have my dads Vega GT wagon that has been sitting in a barn since about 1980. No rust good paint good interior standard shift.
Will that v6 out of the Scambarini fit in there with the proper oil pan and mounts? Do you still have it and if you do is it for sale at a reasonable price. I just want to get it back on the road. I don’t want to drop in a small block. I don’t want to replace the weak reared. That little 140 horse v6 will be nearly twice as much power as came in the car.
I have a t5 out of a Camaro.
