Today it looks like most Fisker owners would not consider converting to a V8 including me, but under certain conditions in the future I might.
Motor Trend recently had an article on Dodge’s plan to sell a Hellcat Engine Kit
it calls the Hellcrate.
The Hellcrate includes the engine for $19,530 and the kit for $2,195. The kit includes: power train control module,power distribution center, engine wiring harness, chassis harness,accelerator pedal,ground jumper,oxygen sensors,charge air temperature sensors,and fuel pump control module. The PCM comes with factory settings. You can also order a Front End Accessory Drive kit that includes: alternator,power steering pump,belts,pulleys a few other things.
Does anyone know if this engine would fit?

The Motor is just a small piece of the puzzle you still need a complete drive train plus a way for the in car features to communicate with the other systems . The LS3 Motor fits there is a member here doing his own conversations including twin turbos I haven’t seen any updates on the project . You can make almost any engine fit with the right skills and machines.

Just dropping in for a followup on this. Has anyone here successfully pulled off the LS swap?

We have a car torn down now, fingers crossed it'll be driving under its own LS power by the end of the year.

I like the way it is now but I would think someday the people who know how to work on these cars will no longer be working on them, then, if it keeps me and my karma on the road, I would.
