Sorry but except for your famous V8's which have their rep all around the world and the GM Buick 3.8 V6 series that we have had in Australia for sometime other American motors tend to be exclusive to America/Canada.
I have been looking at the Chrysler 3.5 V6 that on paper actually looks very impressive and has been made for over 15 years.
3.5, SOHC, 4 valves per cyl, 250+hp for the later ones, revvy (6500rpm), all aluminium (not all), four bolt center main caps, steel crank...
Seems to quite a nice package and an awesome gearbox for mid engined use yet I hear very little about it for conversions or hotting up etc - what gives?
Is it generally ok? I see people using Japanese V6's in conversions and kit cars but this seems to have it over them in most every area or does it?http://www.allpar.com/mopar/V6/35.html
Egoman's build used a 3.5 (early 215hp I think) and this is his engine, looks cluttered but they are actually quite small just with a lot of removable or re-positional junk hanging off them...
