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"

  • What engine and transmission can I put in my 1985 turbo?

    Stock is hard to find. It's a stock 3spd manual (C5) with a 2.3L turbo engine. That's all I know about the car. I want something more modern, hopefully with a 5 spd manual but not too difficult.
