A SHO engine swap into a Triumph TR7 presented a lot of problems. The owner first started this swap about a year after the SHO engine was first released. His article presents all the problems he ran into switching the engine from a east-west to a north-south configuration. Many of the issues he ran into others might as well doing this kind of modification and should be seriously considered.
As if doing a engine swap wasn’t hard enough he also turbocharged the engine with only $500. Making most of the parts required he has spend roughly $12,000 on this project and got a 13.7 sec quarter mile. Some future swaps he is contemplating include a Miata with a SHO V8, Northstar powered Fiero or a Eclipse with a VR-4 powertrain. I would like to see any of these.
