This is cool,tell us more about it

I tend to gravitate to cars I have never seen before. Found this one in kingman: 1940 plymouth, 283 sbc, 3 speed on the floor, '62 landcruiser front clip with lockers. Currently getting taken apart for the L series swap, hopefully a 2.8 if I can find one but any l series straight six should do on boost. Can't wait to say "It's just an old inline 6" (originally flathead 6 @90hp). Project thread coming soon in I guess "other non datsun" Car is 2800 lbs btwsnXF58q.jpg a3hKYbu.jpg

So the zx engine is going into the Dodge? The ZX turbo had some extra goodies to make it work. A non boost ECU and injectors may not work so well when expected to fuel 50% more air. Also the ignition had all kinds of boost retard.

The zx is my daily right now; in the market for any l series inline 6/4 speed for the Plymouth. Was hoping to keep it simple with blow/draw through carbs and early style points dizzy. I know it might not be the best performance option but this car is all about being different. I'll prob de badge everything like the car to keep people guessing what it is; old timers will prob love it til I tell them where the heart came from  :rofl:
