Re: V8 mighty max
all chevy v8's will fit and bolt in no problem
not many people know this but mitu and GM had a partenership that started in the 80's that allowed them to directly swap parts into other cars to help keep costs down. If you're lucky you might be able to find a early 90's might max with a factory installed LT1...
If you had said that Mitsubishi and Mopar had an agreement, I could beileive that, or if you said that Isuzu and GM had an agreement, I could beleive that - but GM and Mitsubishi?
I've had several Dodge
D50s and Mitsubishi Mighty Maxes. The automatic trannies in these were the same bolt patern as the 318 Mopar, and they are
727 model trannies. How do you think I know this? (!) I tried to swap a standard shift engine where an auto used to be. They made 2 different bolt pattern Mitsubishi 2 litre engines!
Anyway, the location of motor and tranny mounts are very similar with Mopar and GM, even simple wiring is similar. I currently have an '88 D50 with a 2 litre that smokes (burns oil) like a forest fire. Maybe a Chebby is in order. Maybe not.
I think that a turbo Starion 2.6 litre would be a cool swap - not to mention a bolt in.
