RE: Motors

1. Yes.
2. You mean aside from ignoring the stares of disbelief or having to shout
anyone since you won't have an engine cover?  Too many for a Squareback,
to be too many in a Fast or Notch.
3. Nope.

What shop manuals do you have?  For basic maintenance and work you should
an Idiot's Guide...a Bentley and/or Haynes is recommended as well.  What are
your problems?  The T3 is the same engine as a T1 with exception to engine
cooling, but even then that isn't any complication.  Fuel injection
Simpler to correct than most people think but if you are just dead set
it then switch to a stock carb setup -- just be sure to carefully remove the
system and give it to a listee! ;)

I know you didn't learn the T1 overnight so don't expect the same from the
(give yourself a break!).  At least knowing a lot about the T1 will give you
edge about the T3, heck, I had to teach myself and after 13 years I'm still
learning (usually the hard, expensive way...)!

What can I do to help?  Because a T1 in a T3, particularly a Squareback,
put a canyon in your relationship and remove all value from the T3 (unless
plan on putting gobs of money in it to use as a racing vehicle).
