PT V8 Conversion
Howdy, I dropped a big block dodge into my 2002 PT. I used the tube frame, front clip and drive train from a '73 jensen interceptor. I wanted the car to look stock so serious mods to the jensen chassis was needed to move the engine forward and get the steering to work. The Jensen works because the front track is less than an inch difference and the rear track is basically identical. I had to lengthen the drive shaft 28'' and get rear springs fabricated. I've got some work left with fabricating exhaust headers (I think the 426 max wedge headers will work), new gas tank, and installing the radiator, in the rear. no room up front any more. I did nothing to the firewall only to move the master cylinder more out board to clear the valve cover. I took a 2.7 T engine emblem from an audi and reversed it, turned the T upside down and cut a bar of the T. so on the back door is 7.2 L almost looks factory. Still have a ways to go, but so far so good. TLMcB.
