I get asked all the time about different engine and transmission swaps, and the truth is that if your fairly skilled with tools and have access to tools and can think things thru and have a reasonable budget and a place to work there are few things you can,t do, now theres plenty of things that cost more that the end result will be worth,or mis-matched components that may be a P.I.T.A. to get parts for, but thats a different question

look over these links above

if you have the desire, a welder ,a plazma cutter, mill, lathe, a good deal of fabrication skill and can measure accurately, theres very little in engine swaps that you can,t do., and with some careful research and a possibly with a few friends help you might be amazed at what can be accomplished.

Your Really Amazing Some Days Grumpy.
I have never seen such a Compiled Engine Weight tables, Dimensions, ect.
Debuncted many myths.
Even the Allison V12 Aircraft & Tank Engine shown.
And 36 cylinder - 5,000 HP Warbird Bomber Radial Engines.
Still the Most Powerfull Piston Gasoline engines ever built.
Torque is off the wall.
All HP Made by 2,000 Crank RPM'S. 3000-3200 Redline.
