What would be a good modern engine to drop into an old FWD Cadillac with the shit-ass 4.1 or 4.5?

      A stock 5.3 ls from a rolled truck, it will be plenty.

      >transverse
      It's not troony mounted, it's longitudinal.

      Wait, this thing is FWD? Lmao

      Yes, and there is a good argument for it, especially when it came out. This was meant for well off ww2 generation, before boomers had money for cars. This thing was built to crooz and be cozy.
      FWD leaves more room in the back for people.
      Town car was an amazing tow rig, big engine, BoF, adjustable suspension.
      But did you ever see one with a hitch?
      Exactly, might as well get more passenger space instead.

        Swapping a 5.3 Vortec into a GMC Motorhome would be pretty based. Get roughly the same power output and increased fuel efficiency at the same time.

      FWD was a luxury option back then, mainly for the increased cabin space from the lack of a driveshaft tunnel.

    The 400hp, twin turbo 3.6 V6 used in the Cadillac XTS V-Sport. Considering that with the 4.1 and 4.5 we're talking about those downsized, tiny Cadillacs (and not the fullsize RWD Coupe Deville) that would be an extreme amount of power for a comfy cruiser. They're obviously not comparable but we're still talking the same power/weight ratio that something like an E39 M5 would have.

      It makes a lot of sense for something like a land yacht that will never be driven fast or hard. You don't need a driveshaft tunnel or a troony hump which gives you more interior room with a flatter floor.
