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

Hey mate,

I am no genius on this matter and there will be more knowledgable people along soon.

But there is no way on this earth that the 2.8 box will handle the power or torque from a V8 6.5 Chev, let alone a turbo version. As far as I know the 3.0TD and TD42T gearbox will both handle the Chev with out a problem.
