It is meant as a bolt in engine swap for trucks that have a 200TDI or earlier diesel in place. Any other arrangement and it will not be bolt in.My bad, I read the bit on the first post about the Ashcroft short R380 as a requirement, didn't realize that was an option.
I think everyone is saying the same thing different ways.
The adapter I manufacture will bolt between the engine and any short belhousing LT77 and also the R380 Stumpy.
Its one of those wonderful mismash vehicles that GM came out with. A Brazilian Chevy Omega with a 250 I6. KISS RD with the 292 plus FI.Have no idea what that engine is pictured, but it appears not to be a direct bolt in, bolt out option so looks like a good engine, just not one I'm interested in.
Well, I stand corrected.Its one of those wonderful mismash vehicles that GM came out with. A Brazilian Chevy Omega with a 250 I6. KISS RD with the 292 plus FI.

That would bolt in if the rear of the block casting wasn't changed from the earlier domestic engines.
Not sure it would clear the steering boxes that could reside on either side.
I have been thinking about the possibility of multi-port EFI, but with the siamese inlet ports, you'd probably only need 3 injectors.
Siamese inlet ports and multi-port EFI is nothing new as the Mini Cooper has it, but know very little about it.
I would think some of the same general principals would apply among the AMC 6 and GM 6.TBI is terribls on I6 intake manifolds. The drastic length differences ans 90 degree turn will have fuel clinging to the walls on some runners and not others. They use a single O2 sensor and average mixture across all of them so you get what you are claiming happened to your multi port 6. Carbureted I6 does this too, but it isnt closed loop chasing a fixed AFR so you fatten it up until all the cylinders are happy which results in the inner ones richer than the outer ones. Multi port is the way to go for balanced fuel delivery on a i6 log style manifold. This is all based on experience with the AMC 6.

The big difference is the AMC 6 does not have siamese inlet ports making fuel injection a lot easier.
The 3 injectors for the 292 would solve the long runner throttle body issues, but make programming more difficult.
