All custom. You'll have to pave the way.

No. Because DRIVEN has done this to a 510 wagon.

 

Been a while since his thread has had posts, but we all know that his runs well.

510 Wagon vs 520, j series vs l series.

 

Still going to be all custom.

Well, at least he can follow Jess's thread and avoid some of the headaches he had to endure.

 

Not entirely blind with this venture.

The GM ecotec 3.8L V6?

the v6 is a really cool looking engine.  I had hoped that the 2 L engine would be easier to deal with.

 

I had thought about replacing the j13 with an L16, which would probably take retooling the driveshaft, motor mounts, and trans cross member.  Then, thought if you have to do all of that, why not put in a newer version engine with less weight and more horse power.

 

Would it be reasonable to think if I could get a ecotec engine with gearbox and driveshaft, then have the drive shaft altered to fit it could work?

I am new to the forum, and would like to study your suggestion as to following Jesses'  thread.  

 

Would you please direct me as to how I might be able to find his notes?
