Will this engine fit in my 88 coupe?

Anyone done this swap?

I think not but this may very well have a 'jet' in it.

Just make sure you don't get a flat tire.

Oh come on, it still can't be too soon ……

The engine measures in at 18 feet (6 metres) long and 5 feet 1.5 metres high, it weighs in at 3.5 tonnes, the stand is 2 tonnes, and the combined weight is approximated 5.5 tonnes.

External mounting is always an option. Will need drop tanks.

Maybe not, but the 88's engine would fit nicely in the concorde.

Umm, arriving in the concorde for cars and coffee.

So you're saying he's going to have to upgrade his torsion bars?

It’ll bolt right up.


A lower performance example for inspiration...

Remember that old 1980s move where they stuffed a bus engine into the main character's car in the final scene for the obligatory rich kid versus blue collar hero car race? After the hero saw that his friends had crammed a bus engine into his car to get it ready for the big race he asked, "Why a bus engine?" "Because" came the response. "We couldn't find an airplane engine."
