But yeah I would like to replace the current engine with something that I can easily find parts for, and still add mods to the motor.

I guess that comes down to:

- how much work you want to do
- your skill level doing it
- how much downtime you can afford for your car to have for the swap
- how much downtime you can afford later while you sort out the quirks
- how much money you want to throw at it (whatever number you have after careful planning should be tripled, unless all of your donor parts are going to be completely overhauled)

This isn't a simple swap. Are there more complicated ones? Yes, but this isn't like swapping a 327 for a 350 in a square-body pickup. From what I can tell you are one timing cover, a couple of belts, I suggest an alternator, and some odds and ends away from having a pretty good car back running reliably again.

Either way: we'll help where we can and are interested in how this comes out.

No problem. If we didn't have typos then the spell-check bots would get bored, start Skynet, and take over the world with lasers and Austrian accents.
