Can i take a 2005 malibu classic and put a
351 Cleveland engine in. ? And of so how
hard would it be.
It would be a ton of work and fabrication work, putting in an old Ford engine into a 2005 Chevy.
Cleveland is a very large heavy engine, I doubt the suspension can handle it even if you could get it too fit. Plus if your in a state that requires testing for renewal it won't pass.
No it won't work as you car is front wheel drive. Perhaps opening the hood and taking a look would be of benefit. Also you have no transmission tunnel and no suspension mounting points for a rear differential.
You guys are thinking inside the box...lol
But thinking outside the box in this case is just plain scary, making up a frame, finding all the right drivetrain componets, electrical, brakes, suspension. AAAHHH
Right! Fun stuff!.
I agree with fast... I have a 96 buick century I'm considering dropping in a 3.4 from the 3.1. Nobody has faith in it but I do.
