Well said, JP. He's just about hit the nail on the head here. My conversion was an iterative process. I did the brakes and suspension ~1990 in San Diego (the same Black Forest mentioned earlier). Did a big 4. . .rebuilt a big 4. . .rebuilt a big 4. . .gave up. This winter, bit the bullet and went with a healthy 2.7 six, and even though it cost just about the GNP of several small nations, once the engine was broken in, and all leaks were chased and corrected (there WILL be leaks in this process), I feel as though I've been transported to another region! Nothing in the world can compare with the punch you get out of these cars that have been put together well! Sorry, I started rambling there, I'm OK now. Anyway, start slowly. Do the brakes and suspension first. Develop your driving skills so that when the car is the weak link in your driving, you then move to the six. You will be rewarded!
