Is there a swap kit for a 1985 t-brd engine and transmission?
There are many engines that you could install in your engine bay BUT, be aware that you will spend some big bucks doing it. It's not just the engine and transmission but drive shaft, electronics, etc. You might be better off buying a different car if you want a "Rod"
