engine swap into a 73 roadrunner
I have recently obtained a 73 roadrunner with a stock 400 big block with a 4 speed
transmission and 8 3/4 rear end all numbers matching. I want to replace the engine with
something newer so if I do have to resell it I can put the original engine back with it. Does
anyone know an engine that I could drop in with minimal trouble?
check the oil pan on the newer engine first. seen a lot of this.
had one of those in 73...great cars and nice body/ check this link>http://www.bpeusa.com/P5249667AC.asp
I am just looking to find a cheap engine that would work. My idea was to get a "junk" engine and make it a nice daily driver that wont break the bank on gas.
My choice would be a 383 or 440 engine. Many in salvage yards. I put a 440 into a Barracuda once. It was from a Dodge R/T that was totaled in the rear.
