Re: [DML] Engine swap Chevy 350 :)



To address this issue point blank it would take A
LOT!!!  You better know what you are getting yourself
into if you so choose to embark on such an endeavor.

Oh and the automatic has gotta come out.  It can't
handle the torque or HP that a 350 chevy puts out, and
there are no other auto transaxles that will fit the
rear engine application of a Delorean.  

However, the standard transmission in the Delorean is
a Renault UN-1 which is actually a standard mid and
rear engine kit car transaxle and that can reliably
handle about 300 HP and ft/lbs of torque.  And it can
be strengthened to handle more.  It is a very simple
and sturdy design.  Many put that transaxle into GT40
replicas with HiPo Ford engines.  

I would say your best bet if you really wanted to
start that kind of project would be to find one that
is already a 5-speed and leave the automatic alone.
