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

having looked at pictures online it appears the turbo of the v8 is going to foul the steering column shaft and box
Try the factory centre-mount option.....
