1982 Chevy Caprice Classic


Asked by Aug 18, 2016 at 12:48 PM about the 1982 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Coupe

Question type: Car Customization

Okay, so I'm interested in buying an '82
Caprice classic with the 5.7 diesel and the
automatic transmission. I want I buy this
car as a project and upgrade the diesel
transmission to a newer and bigger one.
What my question is, is what would be the
best and easiest engine to swap it with. I
was originally thinking of using an old 6.2
truck and swap them, but I think I want
something bigger, or something newer. Any
