my name is David and I have just bought a Niva from the 2003 - 1.7i. I am from Spain but I am living in Poland, where I have bought my car.
I love these cars since I was very little in Spain. Now finally I can have one and do things with and on it.
I have a question: what inline-six engine could be installed into the Niva without cutting and modifying a lot the original Niva's body?
I am thinking about the M103 from Mercedes or the M20 from BMW, each one together with its gearbox. But I don't know if they fit. I am afraid the engine or the gearbox could be too big for the bay/the tunel in the Niva.
Thanks in advance!
