A local boat shop has two mercruiser 470's (he has them listed as 180's, but from what I can tell they are 180 hp versions of the 470) for $800 each. I'm currently trying to decide of I want to go this route instead of the 3.8 ford. How would one go about repurposing one of these engines for automotive use? I know the exhaust manifold would need to be modified/replaced. If I want to run a manual would I use a bbf flywheel?

Is this a bad idea?::
