The oil filler looks higher than the hood. I hope that engine still has some space to drop. Any ideas what EFI you will be using? This is a V12, which limits your choices in the aftermarket fuel injection market.

With Dins, the point is he'll be in the powerband in the drive-thru and the Autobahn.

The moment you swap out the engine or trans you are in Frankenstein territory ...... might be fun but no longer has much to do with Porsche, which is fine with me.... It is your car have fun with it but do not expect it to have any resale value UNLESS you find someone who happens to share your "dream".. E-type jags with V8 conversions come to mind ....
