How much $ And Work is a V8 Transplant???

Hey Guys,

I highly doubt it would ever happen but how much would it cost me for a V8 to put into my AU and then how much would it cost me to fit it? I have a suspiscion that it would just be cheaper to buy an AU with an 8 in it huh?

Cheers,
Brad

if you are hands on, it would be a great project!
i did it with a 1969 XT took out the 170 engine and placed it with a 289 V8 there are a lot of web sites that can help you through it.
enjoy
regards,
Gino.
