This is a little like converting a DC-3 propeller airplane to a jet airplane.

(Actually there WERE a few turbo-prop "jet" conversions on DC-3s, but it amounts to a practically new airplane with vintage skin.)

PD: Im from Chile, so sorry if i don't have a good grammar.

Bless!
Stanton did a DD SL-1200 copy/equivalent that can be found pretty cheap secondhand.
Converting your BD to DD is out of your skill level.
A sip-mat may be the solution that you need.
