They came with an optional V8. A poly headed one, so I imagine there's plenty of room in there. If you decide to get rid of that 230 or have more questions they guys at https://p15-d24.com/forum/4-p15-d24-forum/ would be a good place to go. Always someone looking for a 230 there and they are a fount of info on this era vehicles. They have a truck section.

Awesome Sniper, thanks!
