Engine First Test Fit
Fitting an S52 really isn't an easy task. It requires a lot of cutting and banging. This car was far from perfect so we went at it full force. Watch below as we go about fitting this huge engine in a small car.
One side note, we did use a g240 transmission from an M42. We did this because it is smaller and you also gain overdrive vs the ZF which has a 1:1 5th gear ratio.
Well it sorta fits...had to "trim" the shelf
No transmission on in this picture
Trimming this wasn't needed in the end
