My car has 212000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there. To be honest, this would require you to replace not only fabricate new motor mount brackets, but completely swap out engine, transmission, drive shaft components. The V-12 is a much longer block so everything behind it would also require fabrication. You would also have to completely swap out electronics, ECU, ignition and virtually start with a frame, axles and the truck’s body and go from there.
