A guy at the Aprilia dealership near me bought a '77 Ferrari 208 and the motor blew within 40 miles. It would cost more than he paid for the car to rebuild it, so he's pretty far along putting a Prelude H22 in it. I balked, but hey it does actually make more power...just very wrong noises.

Best swap of all time. 2000 HP Koenigsegg CCX / Ford V8 swapped in to an old Ford Granada. The custom fab in this build is insane.

All I can find is 1260hp (listed in the video description from 2012, I know the chart looks like 1350 but there's no word on weather or not that was WHP), not sure where people are getting 2000 from. There's a speedhunters article that speculates up to 1700hp, but I could speculate 1700hp on my miata too. Seems like the boost will never be turned up and it will forever remain at 1260hp. Supras could eat this up and look better doing it. At least it's a cool looking engine. :?

i'd rather drive this grenada than a mkiv supra. the ccx engine is pretty cool but on my budget a big single 2jz would be fine. like you said, it would make that power all day and cost a fraction of the ccx swap to get there.

Anyone have any thoughts of installing a 4.0 ford V6(explorer) in a Miata. I once installed a 2.6 (german capri) engine, same engine design and outward dimensions into a mgb. This engine/transmission combo was actually lighter than the four banger I removed. The cost was also less, because of the scarce availability of the cylinder heads which are prone to cracking. The perfomance was surprising, blew the doors off many a Z28. The car was a real sleeper!
