      Complete info for a successful swap gm 4.3l v6 into amazon 122

      I have been carefully working and sourcing what WILL WORK in this swap. I am going to offer my learning and experiences to make this upgrade work instead of half assed. I have information on headers that will work with stock steering and suspension, or as I did, a narrowed Mustang IFS, rear suspensions upgrades using the OEM Dana, radiator that fits with fan an shroud, new electrical diagram, in tank fuel pump, computer from GM donor...what to delete, who does it, shifting the 4L60E trans, mounts, gauges upgrade that fits into the spot the old ribbon and idiot guage pod was.
      I even have a solution on how to get the horn ground out of the tube and work for steering mods. We have successfully made adapters for the Mustang IFS to bolt in the OEM holes the old IFS unbolted. I also will direct you to the type of A Arms kit to buy. I will provide the vendor/s source/s for the parts. I have made minimal trimming in the fender wells and firewall for this to work and look factory. If you can follow directions, cut and fab, measure accurately, and weld this will work for you, or it is complete enough to give to the person you want to hire to build it....saves money and miscommunications and invoices for stuff that is unnecessary. I have built many quality and great driving cars from the frame up doing everything but paint and upholstery.

      I AM GOING TO OFFER THIS HEADACHES, TIME AND MONEY SAVINGS FOR $250.00. INFO WILL BE ON A FLASH DRIVE. MORE IF YOU WANT A NOTEBOOK WITH PAGES AND INSTRUCTIONS.
      I TAKE PAYPAL.

      you can email me [email protected].

      Interesting approach. Is there a link to your successful build using this information?

      What if I want to put a B18 into a Monte Carlo? Same procedure in reverse?

      I don't really see the point. You can do so much with a B20 engine.
      1966 Volvo 122S B18D
      1971 Jaguar XJ6 Mk1 4.2
      1985 GMC Vandura Camper 5.7
