    9-7x engine in a 9-5 or 9-3?

    Has this ever been attempted or achieved?
    I'd imagine its almost impossible to do, but I 'm curious!
    If anyone has any info, please link me!

    I never heard of such thing but I have heard of someone putting another engine, maybe a Ford 5.0 V-8, in a classic Saab 900.

    The easier thing to do might just be to rechip the 2.0-16T. Compared to today's cars, the major thing that the 9-3SS lacks is Bluetooth, which doesn't seem too big a hurdle.

    Someone installed a Viper engine in a 9-3 or 9-5 so a LS1 engine from the 9-7X Aero should be possible.
