Welcome to the club! That'* going to be one interesting swap...but it will present some challenges. Here'* what I can think of:
1) Those engines were NEVER in a RWD configuration, so finding exhaust manifolds are impossible, unless you custom weld a set. Though if you used the FWD manifolds, it opens up a turbo possibility...wouldn't THAT be fun?!?!
2) The throttle body is going to be pointing towards the windshield. That'* gonna hinder getting a cold-air intake setup in that engine bay. Even if you supercharge the motor, the throttle body will still be pointing in the wrong direction
The only solution I can think of here is to use the lower intake manifold from an L27 and have a whole new upper welded up.
This will be an interesting project for ya...and this forum will help ya get it done or at least get the answers you are looking for!
