    T5 engine in a ford capri

    Hi looking for some advice

    I am looking at putting the t5 engine in a ford Capri. Just wondering if anyone would have and idea what I would need to get? Was looking at getting a Volvo for parts and stuff. Any idea what one to look for?

    You'll need the sump off a 6 cylinder white block and cut a chunk out of the middle and you'll need an M90 gearbox as well as everything off the T5.

    another possibility could be a bwm gearbox with a suitable adapter plate, but as above, you'll need most of the front end of a T-5 unless your going the stand alone ecu route, but you'll still need most of it tbh......good luck and watching with interest
