Default Shoehorning 940 Turbo into 1800ES

Hi All,
Iím glad to be joining the forum. Please excuse me if Iím repeating an existing thread, but I could not find anything on this:

Has anyone installed a 940 Turbo engine [B230FT] and trans in an 1800ES in place of the B20F engine? If so how can I contact, get info and photos?

Iím dreaming that itís a bolt-in.

Is there a meaningful weight difference?

Many thanks to all,
Paul

If you search the projects and restoration section you will find several similar installations you are proposing. Don't restrict your search to ES 1800s only.
I am still assembling parts to start on my 72 1800ES project. Rebuilt 1991 b230ft mated to a 350Z CD009 6 speed and a narrowed Ford 8.8 3.27 ratio. I don't have any pictures that would be of value to you at this time.

The interchangeability of 1800 and 120 components means you can get a pretty good idea of the hassle involved by looking at those swaps too.

Seldom do I see "shoehorn" and "bolt-in swap" in the same sentence.

I see ... a wealth of knowledge. Or intimidation. Thanks again.
