alright so the possible chance for my el to receive an N/A DOHC motor has came along, after bending the intake valves in the SOHC

Now what I'd like to know is, if I get a long bare motor, would I be able to use my el, accessories, or would I need to use BA/BF ones?

and would I be better off getting an egas motor and changing the manifold to the fuel injected one from the gas?

If you want a gas motor go for bf to be sure of getting the better rods.

From what I have read, it's easier and cheaper going from a standard motor to lpi, than egas to lpi.

Do you realise the amount of work required to put a DOHC engine into an el?
