here is one for the old hands

would it be possable and feasable to put a 327 small block chevy motor in a Zuke ? the reason I ask is there is one in my shop with a 4 speed tranny.

the only draw back would be I am getting 34 miles a gal not a lot of power but hey it would climb a tree if I let it.

and ? # 2 how hard is it to go SPOA and please dont tell me I got to buy something to do it.

Depends on what you want it to do or how long you want to live.

Re: here is one for the old hands

I can't say I'd recomend a SB in a zuk. yes it could be done, but it wouldn't be too practical of a vehicle. Kind of like putting a 427 into a midget.

SPOA, is easy, the hardest thing to do without spending $$ is steering correction. In theory you could build your own Zlink, but you will never hear me recomend it.

That leaves some sort of xover or high steer which will cost you unless you can build your own.

Re: here is one for the old hands

SPOA kits are cheap, unless you know what you are doing I recommend just buying one. I've seen some nice homebuilt SPOAs but I've seen more scary ones. Don't skimp on steering, you'll end up changing it in the long run. Go with a crossover or knuckle over for best performance. As for the V8....sell it and buy some 6.1 gears for your T-case and lockers [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: here is one for the old hands

OH, come one guys...V8's in Samurai's are cool! [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]
Actually, I'd sell it and go with a 1.6 16V myself. Better power for a Sami and a lot less Fab work to get it in.
Also, if you know someone that owns a good fab shop, you can do a SPOA lift pretty cheeply.
Just my $.02
