Okay, I know there's probably thoughts of, "WHAT!!!!???" going through your head right now.. but here me out. I have a 97 Seville SLS that has been plagued with electrical issues, but the motor itself still runs like a champ. NorthStars have been put into countless vehicles, sand rails, dune buggies, trucks and etc. both in FWD and RWD set ups. You can actually simplify the electric set of the engine quite a bit, killing my electrical problems in theory. As this car was a part of why my previous Intrepid was sold, I thought, "Wouldn't be ironic if the car that got rid of the previous Intrepid helped resurrect a new one?"
I'm wanting to know a few things here;
1) Being that others have done V8 swaps in Intrepids, what are the biggest factors in doing a V8 swap? i.e. mounting, dimensions, frame modifications, etc.
2) Where can I get accurate information about engine compartment dimensions?
3) Has this ever been attempted before?
4) How many think that this would be nice to see and/or that I'm completely nuts? lol
