Okay so got a krazy idea as of late.
I am trying to swap in my Slant and A833 into a 79 RX7.
It will fit once I get a rear sump oil pan and pickup.
At least I think it will...lol
Thoughts and or reactions welcome..

Most anything can be done if you have enough tools, time, and money. :mrgreen:

I have a buddy who has a Triumph TR-3 with a Slant/833/8-3/4 that he did while he was in high school back in the '60s. It took some outside the box thinking, but he got it done. :D

Just eyeballing from your pics, it certainly looks like it'll fit. Let us know how it's going, you're not crazy, just a case of slantsickness. BTW, it's pretty much incurable, so don't fight it.

I'd surmise there's a lot of engineering do to with your radiator setup, is there room for a pusher electric fan under that nose? That would help you greatly in room for a radiator. The SL6 is a long motor.

Very true.
This swap has some hurdles but nothing too crazy. I think or hope...

I have seen a Detroit Diesel 6V53 in a Chevy pickup, a 427 Chevy in a Civic, and a 360 in a Plymouth Arrow. All you need is time, a big enough hammer, a welder, and a Sawzall.

Yes I reckon your right.
Things are coming together slowly.
I have a rear sump oil pan and pickup, just got to pull it off the van, clean and install.

I reckon with a stock 225, A833 4spd and 3.90 gears and at 2300 lbs it should motor.
Warm this engine up and she should teach some 5 litre boys a lesson...lol
