    Yeah, really man. You won't be gaining much for what you're going to spend getting an OBD1 engine in there. Additionally, the chassis that's designed for the while ATTS transmission and axles will might cause a problem trying to get a different engine in there.

    What's the reason for wanting to do that?

    A decent idea, but:

    #1 As I said, I'm not sure how it works, putting a non-ATTS engine/tranny into a car that previously had ATTS. Mounts may not line up, and hubs may need to be swapped.

    #2. To spend $3500 for 20 extra horses and a few foot-pounds of torque is way overkill. He's better off swapping pistons, cams and an LSD tranny in there and saving a bundle of money.

    Think about forced induction.
