Re: Engine conversion chev 4.1

I agree with Muddog.Also I would think that the straight six could be a bit too long to fit into the sfa engine bay.I installed a toyota six cylinder 7MGE into a hilux years ago and that was a really tight fit.
I would also rather consider a more modern engine for a transplant.
