I 'gree it is a gamble but my 76 (Otto) is so nice and, runs so sweet with all that junk off, I'm just going to sit on it till 2006. I even have the old thermo unit and, it works too (piece of crap - sombody at BMW shows thier approach had too many R&D bucks that time..)
With a good weber and hand made fittings over the openings in the manifold and, with a cast iron header it runs really nice, has alittle blow by (smokes on deceleration) but overall, the car is so tight and nice... It would be perfect for a six but that is another matter. So, it sits - once in a while I take it around the block..

with tears in my eyes...

Mean while, my little 67 1600 gets 78 miles a day in commuter traffic with no problems yet.. fwy and mountain driving into beverly hills (they drive crazy too - watch out! esp. in the rain.. I don't think 'Fritz' will last long with this kind of punishment but, so far it has been up to the task..
