Re: type IV into Type III?

I don't know about the reliability issue as I think my engines have been 
quite reliable.  And as for an easier, and better, oil filtration system 
you could install a full flow system like I did.  Of course it all depends 
upon what you want and the amount you're willing to spend, but it may be 
less expensive to just spiff up a T3 motor than stuff a bigger T4 in its 

However, if you are planning on putting a 914 engine in the T3 that would 
be kinda neat...!

I'm new to this list, so please pardon me for asking questions with
obvious answers..

OK, I'm sure this has been addressed before (heck I don't even own one of
these cars yet! - anyone know of a good squareback for sale in the Wash,
DC area?), so if there's an FAQ on putting a type IV engine into a Type
III car easily, please point me there. But, it looks like a good swap to
get an oil filter and a more reliable engine. I know the type IV engine
is heavier, but how much? I can lift my 914 2.0 litre engine fairly
easily, but I can't toss it around like a haybale or anything. I never
lifted a type I to compare, though.
