Red top into manta A


Recommended Posts

As per the title. 

I know I need all the right bits to get the xe engine set for rwd. 

Does it fit straight in onto manta A crossmember ? 

Are there any under bonnet alterations to make ? 

Will an 1800 box fit the tunnel? 

Or any other info I may need. 

Oh& pictures would be great too !!!

You may need to put spacers under engine mounts to clear crossmember with sump.

1800 sump and pick up pipe is needed. As is 1800 engine mounts.

exhaust down pipe will need modification to clear anti roll bar.

you will need to make a new gearbox mount.

front brakes will need upgrading!

depending on fuelling option you may need to reposition servo or use a remote unit.

its fairly straight forward but only if you have the skills to take it on!!


Oh and you need to sort your fuel tank with a return line if using injection fuel system. 

What are you thinking for ignition, dizzy at front or plug and play Ecu option?
