New engine transplant 1 Week, 4 Days ago  
Hi guys, I was just wondering if anyone has transplanted a 1700 injected into the frame of a 1600 carby model
, or more radically, transplanted a whole foreign mill and tranny?

unless your getting a roadie for dirt cheap its not worth it. Damn near everything electrical has to change. But it would physically drop right in other than a warrior motor and transfercase.

I saw somewhere on the net , maybe Delphi groups or one of the FB roadstar groups where a guy successfully shoehorned a Warrior motor in a R* with not too much trouble. I'd bet you would find it with a little Google searching...
