PV544 engine swap need some help/info
I know this has been addressed before but here goes. I need to know what it takes to swap a '85 2.3 engine into a '59 PV. I have heard it said "why go through the trouble when I could put a 1.8 or 2.0 and get more power". I already have the 2.3 it came in a package deal and it is also getting an AW71 installed, this isn't going to be a race car, yet.
When money gets better I may build a frame and turn it into a Gasser, then I will go big and go fast in a straight line.
