There are few C's as it is.  As long as the C engine is good, don't chop
the car. 

There are enough B's around to modify one of those first.  The B and C
engine bay are similar, I imagine you would have more problems to
overcome that would make the bay modification a simple part of the job. 
Then again, why not just put a BOPR V8 in a B and have more fun!

Just my opinion.
