Another thing nobody has mentioned is cooling, do you have a radiator for the RB and can you source replacements when one leaks?

Doing the V8 swap would be the way to go imo.

It's scary enough to make me never want to open my engine bay again. (Gimme a few minutes, I'm almost done.)

LOL, I can't wait. Unfortunately I have to get ready for a birthday dinner (not mine). I'm already late actually, if this site weren't so damn addicting.

There has to be a book or an actual technical forum out there that can help you, or maybe even a fricking TV show (If you get the DIY Channel (So It Yourself) they have a lot of lame programming.

Technical forums are a great idea. The more books he reads, the better. At the minimum, though, he needs copies of a good shop manual for both cars. Preferably the ones the dealers get.

Money doesn't buy sense. As you are quite clearly demonstrating.

You should invest your money in a new car... given that you have so much of course. I hope Quiggs' article has turned you off.

Thanks!

They told you the basics: get the shop manuals for both cars, go to dedicated forums for the two cars/engines, read up, have lots of money/time ready, get new mounts/wiring/ecu/etc. You're just angry because they broke it to you the hard way.
