Fair enough! :-)

Hopefully someone with more experience regarding the 2000 series will chime in 
here. From what I know of the "original" GT6 ("Mk1") v. the "original" 2000 
sedan motor, there was around a stated 5 hp difference: sedan @ 90hp and GT6 @ 
95hp. I seem to recall much of that being due to manifolding and/or possibly a 
camshaft difference. Otherwise, the main differences seem to be in engine mount 
points and the fact that the 2000's engine leans over slightly (not quite a 
"slant six," though).
