I had that 215 in a hand-me down 1980 Toyota with cat sized rust holes in it.  It was a pretty cool engine, I have to say.  The carb didn't like angles at all but it got 16-17 mpg highway and was not lacking for power at all.  I ran it with stock gears and 33s.


My nephew who is Mopar expert has a friend who has a good number of these 215 aluminum block engines and would build one for me for my truck.  I have always wanted to do a swap in my trucks.   

Back in my sand duning days, my good friend and ex-drag racer Steve Korney, raced a sand rail with a 215 with two bottles on it, one nitrous and one propane... guess what the propane was for??

It was EXTREMELY quick on the sand!

Gnarls.
