Modded V8 rwd Mazda 6

https://www.carsguide.com.au/overste...uld-love-74280

I had always wondered what the story behind this clip was, now it's explained. Would love to have a V8 and rwd, but I think we all know that will never happen unless we mod it ourselves.

(Detail from a engine swap site back in March)There the company replaced the powertrain with a 4.3 L 3UZ V8 and automatic transmission from a Lexus LS430. As one might expect, the car needed a lot of work to fit the larger engine, transmission, and RWD drivetrain. The firewall and transmission tunnel needed to be cut and the rear end and subframe was sourced from a 2008 Toyota Crown. The car also required a new cooling system, exhaust, and fuel tank. The project took five months to complete at a cost of 100,000+ CNY or about $14,898 USD.








All that for 14k, Good Ol' China man, lol.
