... given that you've already got a 5-speed I suspect that a PT to ABH
conversion will be just as easy as an engine swap ... I've got BTDT there
and can provide more input if needed, but I just followed the manual.
You'll need to pull the flywheel and clutch off your current engine ... and
obviously you will want to consider replacing the clutch if the one you have
has seen a lot of miles.  Word from several sources is the PT's engine
controller works just fine with the ABH ...
