Hi, I have a 85 Daytona turbo Z, 2.2, 5spd, engine is shot. I have a new head for it but Iv been unsuccessful finding a rebuilt short block for the 85 year. If I buy a 86-87 2.2 turbo engine and the fly wheel to bolt to the crank from 86-87 ect would it bolt to my 85 trans with out issue?

if your looking to go to later engines, do yourself a favor and find a t2 short block, it will have stronger crank and rods, now the crank isnt such a big deal but the rods sure are, using the 86-87 t1 rods isnt advisable (they are light weight rods and dont hold up to much abuse over 250 hp) the 84-85 rods are stronger like the t2 rods but have press fit wrist pins instead of floating pins the t2's come with.

i'm in a similar situation as Chad, 85 shelby charger T1, block is shot. I am planning on dropping a T2 engine and tranny assembly I found at a local scrap yard. my question is will the stock electronics (T1 power and logic modules) work with the T2 engine?

nope, get a wiring overlay and a stage 3 from FWDperformance.com

LM computers are low cost, not a lot past $100. Even with shipping and the wire overlay around $200 to add the T2. That isn't much to have it run right.

I found a place called CME engines, they list a short block for my car. Anyone have any feedback on this company?

no Hypereutectic material pistons, that is the only rely thing to investigate. Most machine work is pretty easy to get right. But the pistons can't be cheap with a turbo engine.

If your 85 pistons survived or you can get more I'd consider an over haul, and hone out a 86-88 block for the larger head bolts.
