Lok and see if you can add another 1/2 of a SD22 in the engine bay. I'd bet no.

IIRC the SD33 is about 32" from water pump to the back of the block.

well, everything is possable. just depends how mutch money and time you got.
my friend put nissan 3,3 marine engine in his '78 wagoneer, so you just have to mix it with the gearbox, and new motor mounts.

A '78 Wagoneer was designed to accommodate a straight Six; the '87 Nissan D21 was not!

My point was, If he enuff time and tools he can make it happend. You can cut from the wall in the engine bay. then you have to move the motor, and the gerabox a little bit back. this way the engine will be a little bit in the cars cab, and you might have to chance the dashboard. this was done to Land Rover Defnder, when they put 5,9 cummins in him.
