How much work is it to put a 5-cylinder engine into a car that was
made with a 4-cylinder? I know the engine mounts are different, any
other differences in the body on a type 89? I know about the
transmission bolt pattern being different and the whole engine
compartment layout different with side mounted radiator etc., but I
was just wondering.. Will the body modifications only be to weld in
the engine mount brackets and installing a 5-cyl subframe?
