So a mate is getting rid of his MK2 Granada project..a 2.8 ghia x ...he also has a scorpio with decent 24v cosworth engine his plan was to put it in the grandad...
You can see what I'm thinking...scorpio engine into the Scimitar get the mk2 working and sell on as a running project..
What do you guys think? Any major problems putting the scorpio engine in the Se6a?

The 24v cologne has been done a few times - it’s really wide though, so the alternator causes headaches.

The standard 12 valve is a direct fit, it's the 24 valve Cosworth that will leave you tearing out your hair, as well as lumps of fibeglass.
