I may have the opportunity to buy an engine from a 2500PI automatic.

Will I be able to use the flywheel and manifolds from my present engine which is a late 2000 ?

Hello Tadge44,

Yes to the flywheel and manifolds.
The distributor is another matter, P.I. and carburettor engines have different curves and as putting carburettors on a P.I. engine makes it non standard so some trial and error may be necessary to get the best from the engine.

Thankyou Alec.

I am considering Megajolt ignition if I ever get this done.

Is this PI engine a 125 or 132bhp?
Chris Witor recommends certain needles for HS6 carbs on a standard 132bhp PI engine - BPZ (from memory). You may have contact him for his recommendation of needles with the later 125 bhp engine.
