there was plenty of good info on hotgemini.com about that swap, but the site is "hacked" or something....
I couldn't even begin to describe it, but I hear it's a cool swap.
the gemini crowd got an engine pretty close to that one.

it should sit on the same x member as they share the same floorpan as the chevette and the axle will fit as welland fr brakes............
