Having problems with your 1999 Isuzu Rodeo ?
I want to drop in a v8 motor into my holden rodeo what will be the best way to go about? and make it straight gas too?
Get the engine comp gutted out, take a sledge hammer to everything that sticks out. cut off the motor mounts, drop in the new engine and transmission with motor mounts attached, you will probably be sticking out the front about 6 inches or through the hood about 12 inches. It might fit, but It will be tight. I had a V-8 in my Toyota landcruiser, constant nightmare, Every week I was buying parts, entire front end, one piece at a time, motor mounts by the gross, oil pan, 3 clutches, exhaust system, numerous engine parts, I put over $10,000 in that truck and sold it for $300!!!! I could drop the tranny in 10 minutes. I think I would go with the V-6, The money you save will pay for a brand new motor. Hope this helps. Oh, I have 3, 94 rodeos. Putting a tranny in one right now.
