Nice write-up, sleeper! You covered most everything. Good job! Pardon my ignorance, I've been away for awhile, but did I notice a turbo motor in there?! Did you go for the gusto and turbo that beast?! If so, nice move!!!

Yeah, she's been turbo'ed since last september when you disapered.

She runs great other than a little miss and a high idle. Plan on driving her to school tomorrow to eat a friends SRT4 (already had some fun with him tonight lol)

I've been busy if you want to pop into the tech articles and check all the ones I've written for people

This is just one of the ones I've made.

pedals are indefinatley the hardest part of the swap but after you do it once you can do it again in half the time and... thats why a bought a stick car right off the bat

You can find shifter boots/bezels here too

The VSS and gear will work, however, you will have to grind down the end of the shaft of the speedo gear about 1/4 inch.
