They don't just bolt straight in. There is a lot of mods to do for any v8. The Holden v8 has the starter on the passenger side which makes it fit with a rear mounted rack and Chev starter on drivers side front mounted rack. You can get Chev starter relocation kits to go on passenger side. Then you have exhaust issues and gearbox. The list goes on. Make sure you have plenty of cash. You will need it.

Famous words from Australia movie โ€œThe Castleโ€

But like Quick 64 said make sure you got a lot of cash
OR
buy one already done โœ…

Leyland alloy V8 from a P76.
It is 7kg lighter than a Holden red 6.
The sump fits without modification on a HR front end.
Bolt a Rover SD1 five speed behind it.
It wouldn't be any more work than a fitting any other V8.
And the sound of a Leyland V8 is about the best you will hear.
Even with a stock Leyland V8, it would be surprisingly fast.
I'd build another one if I had:
1: a bigger shed,
2: the money,
3: a wife who would agree to it.

Old is good.

I have come racing aluminium heads on my Holden v8. How much lighter does that make it?
