I just may follow the 'drop in a V8' route in the end, and I prefer a manual, it's just so much more fun :mrgreen:
Money's just the current drawback, what does a new/secondhand V8 block cost these days?

Now you're welcome to call me a Dude, many do, but just so you know, I'm really a Dudette ;)

Would rather have bought Dr G's old Elcamino, this one for a stock motor and drivetrain is in my opinion a quite expensive.

That is the problem with customising :!: You will never get your money back. Keep vehicle in original condition and you make more!!
