You can install any type of motor into any type of car. It all depends on how much you are willing to spend and how good the fabrication work is. There are many kits that allow for easy change and installation of different motor types in specific cars. I have done several conversions of muscle cars from older carbureted motors to newer LS1+ motors. The kits used are easy to follow and ensure a proper fit of the new motor and transmission.

If you choose to do a diesel conversion to a gasoline car, search for kits to make the installation easier or get ready to do some fabrication to the frame, new motor mounts, and possible center tunnel cutting into the cab of the car. The installation of the electronics that come with a new diesel motor is fairly easy to incorporate, just as the electronics with an new LS1 motor has...

If it has pistons then it will be intermittent.
