    sadly V8's are the last choice for most pakistanis since they either want economy or some high revving jap cr@p.

    like redbull_ar said the easiest to find will be a cruiser V8 but even that will be a real hard task. i shoudl point out that those engines are "underbuilt" and can take boost so you misght want to consider supercharging or light pressure turbocharging the blocks as well.

    there are many mechanics who can work wonders with such cars (muscle). there is khalid ustaad in westridge, rustum near choor chawk, jaan motors (the workshop), liquimolly in I-10/3, etc..

    good luck (Y)

    if it's a old RWD rolla from the 70's it'll take a V6 or 3sgte and it'll be insane!! no need for a V8,.. but i'm a HUGE fan of the V8 burble, specially if it has high lift cams and hard valve springs which give it a rough idle,.. ooohhh yeaaaah!!

    for khalids workshop you'll need to go to the westridge bazaar, for rustum, it's right next to the bus stop at choor chawz (next to the mosque), for liquimoliy, it's in street 9 in I-10-3.

    you can always source a V6 in the scrap yards or a V8 but they'll both most likely be toyota units, finding a mopar or hemi woudl be next to impossible.

    Mopar or Hemi will be really hard to find. But you never know and best of luck with the insane swap.

    nothing beats a cast iron chevy or ford small block and they are available by kilos. Just import some as parts in different shipments classified as iron junk. These engines can take amazing amount of boots and churn out destructive power for their size.

    @the boss
    did you know that the 5VZFE prado/surf 3.4L V6 is capable to pruduce 900hp with aftermarket turbos?

    even the D16 crank is reliable up to 600hp, the weak part is the connecting rods, but they can alwauys be swapped out.

    the biggest killer at high output is ignition timing.
