I have seen a few 302 fords, i heard of a guy that was trying to put in a Chevy 350 but never did see it complete. It entails a lot of work, frame mods, suspension, exhaust, etc.

Ive seen videos on YouTube that have dropped LS1 V8's Into an RX7.there was one video of a 1650hp LS1 V8 swap into a 1985 RX7. That thing was scary fast. Also I have seen turboed V6's and even diffirent generation RX7 engines into diffirent RX7 bodystyles. This wouldnt just be an engine swap though, itwould take an,exhaust,suspension, and other modifications to fit a V8 of that size into a little RX7
