Not too long ago, retrofitting an engine into a vehicle it wasn’t originally intended for required a lot of homework.

We’re talking about tedious measurements, clearance calculations, part comparisons, fabrication—and that’s all before you even pick up a wrench.

But now, Trans-Dapt Performance has done some of that engine-swapping groundwork for you and put together handy Swap-In-A-Box Complete Engine Swap Kits.

Yup, these kits contain pretty much everything you’ll need to get your engine swap project off the ground. You just supply the engine/ECU, transmission, and a vehicle, and these kits will help make it all fit.

While each kit’s contents vary by the application, you’ll usually find things like shorty headers, oil pan, and engine mounts—all precisely compiled and tested by Trans-Dapt for the exact engine/vehicle swap you’re undertaking.
