So I have an extra engine from a 280z. Everything is there. I also have a Ford ranger body the is in decent shape. Thinking of putting a Z engine in it. The stock 4cy in the ranger puts out a lowsy 98hp new so I'm thinking with the Z engine it should have a lot more get up and go.has anyone done this before? I've searched but can't seem to find anything.

Lol.. I'm pretty sure you'll be the first. If you got the money you can make any engine fit in any vehicle.
