23/11/2003 16:01:24   Dave   I'd like to place a V4 in a Lotus-7 I'm building but cannot find a machine shop that will hook the engine up to a rear-wheel drive transmission. Is there any transmission that will bolt up to the V4 with little or no alteration?

I would guess that most RWD Ford boxes have the same mounting pattern. EG Escort or Cortina.
