The only downside of a 12V conversion is the loss of originality/nostalgia. I grew up in an 8N/NAA world and I have a lot of very good memories associated with them. When I decided to convert my 8N to 12V I was repelled by the looks of an "ugly" alternator hanging off the side of my old tractor. So I had the original generator rebuilt and converted to 12V. I call it my stealth 12V conversion ;-) I am still saddled with an under-powered electrical system but it is now 12V and if nothing else cranks a lot better and lets me use 12V lighting.

EI is a more contentious issue mainly because the commonly used Pertronix Ignitor modules have a reputation for failures. I have an EI conversion on my to do list and when I get to it I will be using Pertronix more expensive Ignitor II module because it has some survivability enhancements (reverse polarity and over current protection) that will hopefully help keep it healthy.
