Call me crazy but what about a falcon 6?
The EL-AU ones were killer and they had LOADS of torque, not bad on fuel (for a 4L) common as rain on sunday and you can't kill em. Not a real heavy motor ither, ok so they are a bit heavy but if you're building it out of space frame then who cares? They are lighter than any diesel you'll get for the price and power range. Or for that matter you could get the holden V6, a far inferior beast to be sure but it would do the job. even a jeep?

I don't think anything 4cyl will have the torque you want unless it's turbo diesel and that becomes too co$tly. So a 6cyl petrol would be a cheap way out, but you could also go a small block V8, chev ford crysler, whatever you want can be had at your local wreckers. Small blocks are often to be had cheap because people (dick heads) always want a bigger engine and so go and swap a great 253 for a shit 350 or something. Unfortunately people with diesels normaly aren't so ready to part with their engines and a bad diesel is something to be avoided (ask a diesel mechanic about blocked injectors)

anyhoo here are some examples of what I found some people will pay for engines.

Maybe a falcon motor... But never holden :tongue:

I have to admit the ford 6 is very popular in U-pull It, but the other problem I see is most of the cars with this motor have no body damage :eek::rolleyes:

I really don't want an 8, that's just too much, unless it's all alloy.

Toyota soarer 4L twincam all alloy v8, 32 valves and a whole lot of fun,
1UZFE
3968cc, V8, 32 Valve, Quad Cam, All alloy block, RWD, Auto only.
265 Hp 37kg.m at 4600rpm
Engine w/o Gearbox $1,450    
 
2JZGE no box, ex manual RWD $1450  SUPRA ENGINE non turbo

http://www.adelaidejap.com.au/engine_packs.htm

The current Ford V8 is available in full alloy, but that'd be $$$$$ and it's a drag strip motor. The standard block is alloy (I think) but it's still heavy, best power to weight is the Toyota.

What about a VL commodore 6cyl motor? 3L injected and the single best engine ever to wear the holden badge (it's a Nissan).

Go crazy and get a Jaguar 6L V12 (xjs) and boar & stroke it to 9.2L! $$$$$ and it weighs something like 400kg+ not to mention destroying any drive train you put behind it.

Lol yeah i like the Jaguar engine idea, but seriously i Still think its well worth going for the diesel, on the whole it will be simpler to maintain (minus the injection system) but when you take things like water into account and all the electronic stuff if your going to go petrol go for a carby, you already know how comlicated installing a fuel injection system is.

I found this on ebay, i hear mixed things about this engine, the sumary is great performer hard to get parts for and not as reliable as the td42

block will be fine, harness will be shaged, computer...
you really just need to check it out.
If you want to do water crossings in a fully custom rig then just put the radiator in the back window, :subaruzall: plumb it in and stick thermo fans on, it'l never get wet let alone submergerd. You will also want to get an air compressor to plumb into any electrical boxes (fuse, distributor etc) and into your diff and gear box breathers, about 3-5 psi on the regulator should do it.
Alternately expandofoam works really well on a thrashittillitdies machine :thumbup:.

It's here...
It looks like it's the C200 front diff and H233 rear, not sure if the rear is  an LSD, looking into that...
It's got the the steering box and all that stuff. Even got the fuel pump..
It also has 15x8 ROH wheels. Looking at maybe selling those and just using some 15x7's..
I'm hoping to find a Rover v8 and gearbox plus transfer case and then sell the MQ's box and case and just use the axles really.. We'll see...

Why sell the 15x8's?

they allow you to run 33 inch tyres later on if you want, they also allow you to air down more so you can get more bag from your tyres
