Thanks for your original post that produced such great reasoned responses
from VV membership. It enabled me to get my questions answered as well.  It
is clear that the 140 is not the logical "fit" in an FC I had thought it
would be. While my question dealt with a 1964 PG Convertible, I had been
saving a pair of 140 heads for my Rampside. I clearly will reconsider that
in light of the info gleaned from this thread.  I have a nagging suspicion
that the turbo engine that I have in mind for the other Rampside may not be
a good swap either.
