That would be good for making an "Alger"

ALGER
Not quite.
An Alger is simply a Tiger clone where a V8 has been installed.The 2.6 was a limited production for a couple of years in the Capri.The motor of choice for a V6 conversion is the 2.8 ford.there is an excellent kit which virtually makes it a bolt in swap.200HP is a easily obtained without too much work.There are quite a few V6 Alpines now and the car turns into a wonderful handling machine.Great acceleration and reliability.On mine I had 170000 miles of great fun before I finally had to pull the engine

What all cars or trucks did the 2.8 engine come in?

also came in the Mustang for a year or two in the early 80s or late 70s. I believe the Merkur Scorpio used it as well.

The Scorpio version was 2.9L and fuel injected. I thought the Scorpio was always mated to an automatic (Ford AOD as I recall from when mine expired) but I recently saw one on eBay mated to a 5 speed.
