To be fair, the OP mentions his intention is to modify the Esprit and sell for a profit. Traditionally, that's a tough proposition and others are merely highlighting that goal will be difficult to achieve.

I knew buying my 88 Esprit involved no profit or resale value.

Surprising how many recent Esprit purchases involved buyers that didn't realize that fundamental fact. The OP apparently has done conversions that were profitable by his measure, so the Esprit should be quite the challenge, yes?

The OP's goal of V8 conversion looks very interesting and I look forward to seeing the adventure unfold
