You will not regret it. Good choice on the engine btw.

Keep us posted on the conversion and let us know how big your grin is when you fire her up.

I ain't hatin'.
I have seen his motor conversion several times and it is really nice.
$15K+ is a big number that's all. I bought a 2wd with a rebuilt motor and a 5 speed, a syncro doka and a synco van for less than that.

For that kind of power, $ will need to be spent.
This is in the league with WRX and will need trans work as they stated.
Tristar Eric has more than that into the STI and G50 combo in his red 2wd , for sure.
I appreciate the need for $peed.
