    Hi, I wondering if anybody had any idea if it was possible to put Dohc
    from my 89 740 gle into my 245 wagon?the 245 wagon is 5spd sohc the
    740 a automatic. I know I got to move the distributor and swap
    transmissions. Is there anything else that I should do? Anybody done
    this before? Help I want to do this so bad.

    For all the work, why not put in a turbo engine?

    Is there room for the standard distributor? You might have to go with
    distributorless ignition. It can be done though, I've seen it done. The
    16V is a nice motor, very smooth.

    No I don't want the turbo due to the gas prices and the fact the motor
    in my gle only has 130,00 thats barely broken in. Yes I can move the
    distributor, but if anybody has a link on how to do a distrubutor
    ignition let me know. Jason

    The turbo should get comparable fuel economy, but since you already have
    a good motor from a (presumably) wrecked car then go for it. As for
    distributorless, do a search for Ford EDIS, that seems to be the most
    common one people transplant. You could also use Megasquirt & Spark to
    control both the fuel and ignition, that's more work but a LOT more
