Hi- I just bought a 1970 Opel Gt that is a basket case. I have read what everyone thinks of putting a V8 in an Opel, but I have a 215 Buick sitting in the garage. I also have a T-5 tranny and a T-56 tranny. I get the feeling that the majority of the folks on this board would sell this stuff and soup up the Opel engine. However, if you had these items just sitting around, would you still feel that a V8 swap is such a bad idea? I'd really like to give it a whirl, but I'm not going to beat my head against the wall if several have tried and failed. Just looking for opinions. Thanks!
