Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am negotiating for a 1983 Eldo Barritz with the HT4100 engine. The engine is wasted.
Other than replacing the engine with another HT4100 what other engines are possible
candidates for the swap?

that is front wheel drive, right?- what is so attractive about this car that you want to complicate your life so badly? guess why the current owner wants to sell it-


I cant remember the displacement but its the next one Caddy offered. Its a direct bolt in and the ecu doesn't even need to be changed.

Something in the back of my head is saying The 4500.

The 4100 was a P O S. So even if you find a running one don't get it.
