I could not agree with you more and I actually contacted Perry (the  
ex-owner of that Avant) with the same question. He said they were  
crazy-expensive but well worth it. Others here will warn you of the  
options WRT tires, alignment, ect. Most of these only come down to $$  
though so if this is not an option for you, i say go for it.

And glad to hear you are using R&T after a coupel of us recommended  
Suni. He is great and best of luck with the swap.
