I have to say, being a fan of an auto box, that the thought of an Omega V6 and auto in a CF is very very appealing.

 

I ran a 3.0 auto omega on gas for several years, really really regret selling it , lovely engine and box combination

2jz out of an early Lexus GS would be entertaining.

 

The CF would then have more Toyota content than the new Supra....

Yep the 2.3td used in the Mk3 Carlton was a good conversion for the Bedford, and a lot of Mk3 Carlton’s met their fate that way. Probably for the best actually.

Sideways is the only way forwards!

I'd rather suggest the Omega 2.6 or 3.2 engine as they are fly by wire, mostly, so would make for an easier transplant. The autobox is quite substantial but they are a piece of piss to convert to manual


How easy are they to get running on a cut down loom? I keep thinking one would make a good replacement for my pinto.

What about one of the later 2.4 duratorq engines from a late model LDV Pilot or Convoy with associated gearbox? A lot quieter and more refined than a shitbag banana lump.

I was going to suggest BMW, since there is such an abundance of them that they are viable modernisation candidates not requiring any funny stuff to make them RWD compliant.
