I do not know if I am right,but this engine looks as if it is an easier fit than a L series or a CA18 or CA20,looks smaller in lengh,as if taylor made to fit. Is it really easier to fit than a L series or a CA 18?

Eddie Terrel said regarding putting the VG30 into a 1200:Quote:
Surprisingly enough there are no modifications to make in the engine bay apart from a few mountings that need to be installed to mount additional control gear
His project site is at

Consider though that the weight of the V6 is a lot more than the stock engine or a turbo-4. I say if you have access to one cheap, put it in! You can put the battery in the trunk and be glad a V6-1200 weighs a lot less than those V8-1200s
