Thanks Hal........so these are my options........let
me explain in detail and let me say that I sure
appreciate all your help and the entire sites help
cause i dont know type 3's.....actually to be honest
vw's are NEW to me hehe.......so im learning as i go
so please bare with me. .

My 70 fastback is in good to great condition for
setting in a field for upteen years. no rust cept for
a small place on a fender. its all there.......cept
for the engine. Its an automatic which i want to keep
and its still in the car. The t4 engine was with an
auto also.........still complete and has all its
pieces i believe its a 74 but im sort of unsure of
that. NOW, your instructions......would they still
apply....as far as the auto tranny if i went with the
t4.....I hear its a GREAT engine, but I got this other
one for CHEAPPPPP so i thought what the heck id go
carb.......and maybe it would fit a little
better.....sheesh.........so i dont know.
