If I was to buy a Ford Ka what engines could be swapped in quite easily?

And likewise what could go in with a little work for more power?

Thinking about a project. :D

yeah i think there is complications on that conversion but the FK-OC has some guides

to be honest there's a car on there with a 3.0v6 in the front with turbo in the boot :lol:

That was a ridiculous project, do the sport engine in it and turbo that, FK-OC's flagship car really, im sure meilack will be able to put a link to the car, its pretty well known if youve been on FK-OC :P

Not seen that.


Saw the one with the 2.5 in the front.
T'was a proper engine though, 54deg block!

Odd. If I was to turbo either, it'd be the 2.5.

I say if, I've got 90% of what's needed just lying around :rolleyes:

Well we are looking at a ka due to cheap parts, light weight, and looking pathetic.

Looking at something which can swap in and out easily, how about looms/ecus any easier or harder.
