I really want to do this. Why? Because my F2T is being rebuilt and I wrecked my 96PGT so the motor is doing nothing. I don't think it has ever been done so why not try. I like the KL, but when my F2 is ready it is going in. I had just bought Pacesetter headers, KLG4 manifold and Outlaw Spacers just before the accident. Plus I have a 75 shot. I wanna see how quick it will be.

Hmm, its not impossible, but like anything non factory, ask yourself why you need to do it as it will add an increased risk of problems.

I would have thought that the transmission placement would be more or less the same position as an F2 NA, Therefore no probs with driveshaft fitment.

I've thought about this on and off.

You can fit both a KL and an FE3/F2T into a BG chassis, using a mix of OEM mounts.

Therefor, you SHOULD be able to fit a KL into this chassis as well. As well as a BPT. (But why?)

I have the Wisecos and Pauters, the oil pump went out and i spun a few bearings. So i have to rebuild. my colt cam was destroyed as was the head.
just getting a new crank, bearings, rings, then the head is being built with Ferrea valve train.

Not sure how fast you till be doing this, but I will be mocking the setup into ont of my cars late this summer...from what I know about mounts...ytou can do it the way you describ ed, but the car will b every torque biased in one direction...when I did my gl to gt swap, I didn't know that mount was different, and ran a while like that, car always pulled the same direction no matter the conditions...I was planning on trying it with both gt mounts for the top 2, then custom brackets for the front/rear trans mounts...not the highest priority project atm, otherwise I would say I could do it soon...got a new dd I wanna get running, and a 1gen mx6 I'll be prepping for a local figure 8 derby race...

Ahhh the fun of splicing wiring harnesses.

Looking good so far, can you take a close up pic of the clearance between the engine and firewall.

I responded to your post on pt for this bit...but here it is again...look under the car where the rear mount should be on the 1gen...the trans will have 2 through bolts where the case halves come together...all the others just go intot he front part of the case...2 go through and have nuts on the other side...a n/a 1gen mount will bolt there, just not sure if it lines up w/ the crossmember, but you should let me know;)

Matt-sweet I ordered one not knowing if it would work. I will let you know if it lines up thanks.

Oh yeah plenty of room. lol I'm almost done wiring the headlights, turn signals and sidemarkers. Cool thing is that the wire colors are the same, so it isn't that hard, just getting the 1g dash switches and stuff to function like factory.
