      If it was me I would get it running with what you have lying about that bolts in with no mods or hassles. If you start going 1J or LS it becomes too daunting trying to do everything etc. if you throw the 179 in at least and you will have half a chance at getting it roadworthy in a much shorter time frame

      I would prefer to see it with a V8 in there though haha.

              Needs a V8, grab a VN 304 & trans (early ones don't need computer for trans) from gumtree for $500 & slap a dirty old holley & cheap ebay intake on it, bosch HEI dizzy & second hand headers.
              You could sell the 179 & cover most of the cost - dumb cunts will pay $$ for a nice 179 & 5 speed, dunno why.

              304 bolts straight in, gets the 'right' motor in it, is cheap & gives a nice basis for a decent engine in the future.

              If you need engine mounts, sump & pickup for 304 into HQ hit me up, got plenty laying around, may even have a bosch HEI.

                PS - if you go 304 & rego with the later engine with carb fitted is a hassle I *may* have a solution, but can't post it on a public forum - PM for info.

                    I do actually own this 5 litre piece of shit but it has the typical fun 5L problem of oil light disco.

                      Oil light disco is easy fix, it'll be a clogged pickup, which needs to be changed to dump er in a HQ anyway.
                      Also worth pulling the oil pump apart & cleaning the relief valve etc & reassembling packed with moly lube so it primes up quick.

                        TK suggests VN V8, Skompa already owns entire VN - love it

                            I bought it to put the 4 speed in the caprice and then never got to drive it to figure out if the auto was any good so it has just been sitting there.

                            Figured it was just the pickup but it hasn't been high on my priorities list. Cheers man!

                              Ha! problem solved, has V8 VN donor car already in stock.

                              Just use that then, will be much more rewarding than the 179 nugget
