Oh, Boy! If you make it out to Steamboat Springs in february you can
see der LT1Q there with Peter Golledge at the wheel. It is not a
simple bolt-on conversion, let me assure you. You'll need a flywheel
adapter plate plus a few other things from Kennedy Engineering,
Custom fabrication needed to allow for proper cradling of the
engine. Then you'll need the corresponding wiring harness and ECU.
Proper alignment and rear throwout bearing at the flywheel is a must
(we went through 3 trannies during our trip to and from the Monterey
Historics (Audi was the featured marque) in 1999. Man, that beast
was/is a blast :-D Went through a few engines, too, before
everything got sorted out. Stay away from OptiSpark. See why: http://
BTW, two VW radiators were used for cooling -- one over at each
inner fender liner.

Call me wacky, but I'm curious about dropping a small block Chevy engine
into a 200 or UrS? Why? Well, I've been researching HP upgrade
my 200. While there are a few high HP(450+) 3Bs in Europe, according
of people I've corresponded with, the distributor ignition on the 3B
my possibilities. To make 450hp on a 3B, one needs to install an AAN
harness(wiring nightmare?), ECU and coils or go standalone($$$). With
either of the aforementioned choices, the minimum hardware needed is
turbo and manifold($3500). The Jegs catalog, www.jegs.com has a
warranted, new $4000.00 dollar engines. Heck, I'm sure one of my
buddies could find me a good condition used 350 for much less.
ANy BTDT SB Chevy swaps?
