Engine swop

Postby Tillo » 03 Jan 2018, 22:58

Hi, I am thinking about changing the engine and gearbox in #101 and was wondering what you guys think would be a good choice.
It has got a 4 cylinder Perkins diesel (D39) and 5 speed box in it that I believe came from a Volvo L430 Trygge or F83 (got some good info from Perkins using the engine number).
I would like to go back down the straight six petrol route but not really sure what to go for. Don't need to go for original ED but maybe something a bit more period than modern....if that makes any sense.
I've got a 4.0L Jaguar engine but it is probably far to long with the gearbox as well (more power and torque than I think is really needed, if that is possible).
So.........anybody got any good suggestions or knowledge of what other people have fitted.
