Engines in the new Chevrolet SS kits


Recommended Posts

I looked on Revell's PDF instructions online and the engine looks identical to the one in the Ford Fusion's instructions minus the valve covers. Are they the same engines in the Chevys and Fords? In just wondering because I kinda want to kit bash some of my models with Nascar parts but I dont want to put a Ford engine in a Chevy or vice versa. I have a Fusion kit that I traded an unwanted kit for and wondering if I should bother with an SS.

First pic is the SS and the second is the Fusion.

No they are not the same but the bottom end of the Chevy R7 and Ford FR-9 NASCAR engines looks quite similar, and when they were still using distributors both had them at the front, they use individual coils now tho'.
So as long as you have the right cylinder head/valve cover assembly where the engines differs the most you are quite safe.
