the whole engine + gearbox + ecu + pretty much the whole front mechanics and electrics of the donor car would be an idea.

What are you expecting to do with it?

You are not going to be able to just bolt it on.

The conversion that people do is to replace the whole K series engine with the T series one.

Or use the turbo, manifold etc from the K series turbo found in the Rover 75.

You would need the gearbox, mounts, engine, loom, dials, exhaust, brakes etc

True, plus 5AS unit, gearbox linkages and so on.

Really not worth doing when they can be bought off the shelf as it were.

Brakes I had. Good spot on the others.

Should we just shorten it to "just about everything mechanical" :lol:

Also insuring a stock ZR160 would be a damn-site easier and i'd imagine cheaper too, especially if the '88' is when you were born. :)

In all honesty, don't take this the wrong way, but what would you actually use the extra horses for? The 105bhp 1.4 k-series is a stomer of an engine as it is, more then capable for everyday use.
