Yes that is correct the original DB5 uses a DS 1000 engine which is about 95 hp, and the later ones used the 1100 2 valve engine, like a hypermotard, veru cool but not near the power of the 4 valve water pumpers, I love the project and am jealous U are getting to do it and not me

I couldnt help but look at the welds. It's what I do. You have any supplies to do a penetrant test? If you need some, I can hook you up. It's an easy process and will tell you if you have any defects that could cause a leak. It's spray on stuff.
