BigJohnny Posted February 10, 2009 Report Share Posted February 10, 2009 Long story short, I have the chance to get a 94 Cadillac STS (Seville I think) [4.6L Northstar V8] for $150. The car is in bad shape, but nothing really serious wrong with it.... it could be fixed to run with a good amount of time and effort invested (lets not forget money, its a Cadi). I also don't really have anywhere to put a whole car that doesn't run, which is another problem with keeping and rebuilding the whole car. So one of the many ideas Ive had for this car is to simply rebuild the engine(it has a blown head gasket) perhaps as a racing engine and maybe sell it OR find a way to drop it into my 96 Mercury Cougar [4.6L Ford Modular V8 281ci]. I don't know whats involved with that kind of modification or if it could even be done at all, but taking it one step further, What would be involved with literally cutting off the front of the cadi, and putting it on my car? if that is possible, would it make it easier to put the cadi engine/tranny into my car? are the front of these two cars the same width? would it work or is it just a pipe dream? I have the skill to do this kind of mod, access to most of the tools required, and the knowledge to get through it all, just no actual experience with building cars to this extent, and not alot of money, though this is a project which may warrant an investment or loan of some kind Thanks for any advice you can give me, I really want this project to become a professional endeavor somehow, if I could.
