Ok, im new to the site and new to Opels, will be buying a 69 GT shortly, my dad is picking it up for me so it will be at the house when i get back from iraq. anyway my question is, i looked around on this site about engine swapping for Toyota 4age and read where danOmyte wrote a while back - "The 4AGZE will be a straight bolt in. Stick an AE86 transmission on it and go. Quick, simple, and it will easily fit in the Opel's engine bay, the engine is absolutely tiny." Can anybody expand on this for me? Is it really a "bolt in" swap? If it really is, is it due to the fact that Toyota and GM shared some bolt patterns back in the day, ie 4age in the mid 80s Novas? I like the fact the 4age can be built pretty stout naturally aspirated (formula atlantic ) and i think a NA late model I4 in a GT would be awsome. Light car + light drivetrain + decent handling = immense fun factor. This GT is not the only project i have going on either. Also waiting for me to get back is a 79 Spitfire thats getting a 13B turbo, a 73 MGB convertible thats getting a SR20DET, and a 69 MGB GT thats getting a VQ35DE and matching 6 speed. Will be using this site alot more than likely, thanks ahead of time for any help i get!
