How to do it best.
The absolute best choice is a Cosworth. Strangely enough, you can buy a complete car in UK, the Fords, for less than an engine will cost you in the US. The other option is the Mercedes Cosworth. The come up often on Ebay and reasonably priced too. Strip off all the garbage and FI, add carbs and no electronic gadgets and fly like the wind. Parts are readily available for this. Dont buy from Mercedes, buy from aftermarket mfrs and save lots of $$.I want to get started restoring my 73 GT. I'm just not excited about the original engine. I want to do a engine swap but I'm just can't decide what to put in it. I have a T5-trans. I thought of a Quad 4 or a Ecotec. Is there information on these swaps or others? No V-8s please. I think the V8 is way too heavy for the car. I'm a road racer and would like to be able to take the car out for some laps. I'll be updating the axles and brakes too. I love the styling of the car just no its mechanics.
