I'm in deeper than that now, and I look at the retrofitting as a challenge at 
this point.  What that usually means is----it WILL be done and most likely 
done sucessfully.  Are you sure about the cranks and rods, Hagar.  I think the 
later non turbo 1.6's had the same crank and rods, but my sources could be 
wrong.  How about it Loren??
