If you are set on doing it then fair play to you.
I have recently sold an MV ( to you Oz boys a Brumby) with EJ20t - dont get me wrong they are a total hoot to drive but also a money pit and frankly unless you are going to also do the brakes and stiffen the chassis and upgrade the suspension the little old brumbys chassis is going to always let you know it was designed for a lot less power than you will have !!
They are also the worst risk you can possibly have to your driving license !!
This is NOT a cheap conversion in both monetary terms and time.
I am about to start work on a EJ22 conversion into a MV Brumby and I think this will be about right for the chassis / brakes
Good luck but be aware of the beast you are about to create........
0-60mph 4.5 seconds
140mph - then chickened out
both verifiable on race track radar !!!!
