I am currently working on installed an h-block 16v turbo in a 1980 5-door - originally a b-block 8v turbo. I am going to install an LH system rather than deal with converting the new engine to use the old CIS system... It'll be more work, I'm sure, but since I have no experience with CIS I'd like to keep my pulsed system... :) Tell me, though, what transmission did you use, and how did it all mount up? The engine mounts, I assume, are in the right place? -Justin
