I am thinking any 4.7l short block will work. Just move over your pistons and top end.

Thrust bearing puts tons of junk into the oil, so you may have bits in all the places bits can go, but still most of that Euro motor can be reused, and switching to a different model year has plenty of electrical etc issues most would prefer to avoid.

Easiest fix, what I would do, is swap the short block for a US 85/86. You will need to notch the pistons for 2v instead of 4v, and I would have the heads looked over and lifters cleaned out or replaced, but other than that everything should fit and work with your car as is.

*** Note only the 85/86 short block matches up well, other years have issues.

OT: I thought Eliminators had Boss 302 motors in them.
