Which Engine Would You Swap Into Which Car?

Illustration for article titled Which Engine Would You Swap Into Which Car?

At the risk of starting the blasphemy debate anew, let's explore a parallel universe. You like Car A, but wish it had the engine from Car B. Make it so! Which engine would you swap into which other car?


Engineers know best, don't they? Well mostly, but sometimes product planners don't have our best interests at heart. They want to sell their vehicles to civilians too, not just slobbering car fiends. But in our parallel universe we answer to no counter of beans, thank you very much. Let's hear from our own product planners. Mix and match, just like your mom used to do with your Garanimals outfits.


And don't forget, loyalties be damned! Think an AMG V8 would serve a Ferrari better? Go for it. You are just that crazy.

To anyone who says 1950-71* VW bus with Subaru, Zetec, insert-your-non-aircooled-whatever-here, please kill yourself now.

Accept that a Transporter is slow. It is not a sports car. It is a device to move cargo, people or a kombination, but neither quickly nor through a cones course.

You idiots keep destroying perfectly good busses and it needs to stop.

*anything after 71 you're welcome to do with as you wish.
