I guess my question is: Will a larger engine that has mounts that come very close to fitting the original be simpler to install than a smaller engine that will need laminate work and possible metal work to mount? I know the answer to that question may seem obvious, but I also know that different engine dimensions can throw of alignment enough to warrant more mounting work anyway, no matter how the mounts line up.
look here for a complete discussion.
