I have just purchased a 71 opel gt that has spent the last two years being all restored except for the long block and a few ancillaries. I will be using the car as a toy/nice day commuter. I am wondering how I can make it more Highway worthy. Is there an easy bolt on 5 speed? And is there an easy way to eek a few more horsies out of it without shortening the life of the motor? I am not looking for a race engine, just a strong engine that I do not have to worry about. Oh, one more ?, about what temp range should the motor be at its max (guage wise).

Do a search for '5-speeds' or 'Getrag' for information about tranny swaps. Similarly, if you did a general search under the 'Performance' section of the BB, you'll probably find all the information you could ever need. Both of these subjects have been discussed heavily on this BB, so you'll have some back-reading to do!
