fitting a 6.5 v8 turbo to a 2.8

my 2.8 is a little asthmatic to say the least anyhow ive got a good v8 6.5 chev turbo engine here and can certainly make it fit.

is there an adaptor to the 2.8 box or do i find a zd30 box??

as the td42 is very scarce here.

alternatively is there a better gearbox i could use?

I can get propshafts altered and weld on engine mounts.

i see theres a good site from poland which do conversions.

any more info would be appreciated. Thanks

Easier and stronger to swap the 2.8 box out for the 4.2 4.5 zd30 box etc, keep 2.8 transfer so you don't ned to change tail shafts and diff flanges, the transfer will bolt up with a small mod.
I don't think you can get an adaptor to join the 6.5 to 2.8 box.
