Question type: Car Customization

Wondering if there's a book for this. I want to do this swap if I can find all the right pieces. Think it would be bad ass!

I'm sure there isn't a book, and it would be neat to do.

There's no book, all you need is the engine with all ancilliaries including the complete wiring harness, transmission and radiator, some decent fabrication skills and plenty of free time. It won't be easy but it can be done. You may also need to change the steering system due to the difference in the overall engine dimensions and resulting position.

And to find a NSU Ro80.

I have two cars that were converted. Works well.
