[e//S2] 3B or not 3B

that is my question.
I am about to purchase, on Monday, a 200 20vt.
I am wondering what are the main compelling reasons not to go with this
motor for my conversion..? My main goal is to achive a very daily
driveable 280-300 hp, and be able to maintain the finished product at a
minimal cost.

I figured that if I needed to have RS2 spec I would probably have to go
with AAN or ABY. Is that true? Or can the 3B also be modified properly
if the need for more overcomes me?

Also, will the stock CQ gearbox be sufficient for the conversion or will
I want to try to bring the 200's gearbox over as well, if that's even

Finally, how stable are the 3B's? Maintaining a 7A motor for the last 4
years has really gotten on my nerves and I need to know if I have to get
used to it or if it gets better with the 3B.

Thanks! Pat
