I read through your post and that is significant amount of work done to the car. Excellent Job.

Thanks! I still have a long way to go though.

One thing at a time. Rear suspension needs to be done first. After that then I can get into the horrible engine swap.

Car is on 4 wheels again! It has new calipers, rotors and stop tech stainless steel brake lines. Also poly bushings and an ST sway bar. It took longer than it should off but it's finally done. Here's some pics of it completed.

I'm honestly not worried about getting the engine running. I'm more concerned about swapping to a manual

Manual swapping is a breeze if you got all them parts. Plug and playa!

Literally the easiest job ever if you have all the parts. I'd rather do a manual swap again than do the rear bushings.

Hardest part would be putting in the master cylinder and pedal assembly, the rest is just changing a clutch more or less.

Well thats good to hear. The rear bushings weren't really that bad but then again I did have a shop press the new ones in. I think I have everything except the rubber clutch lines. I won't be changing out the clutch on the beams and I'm just going to drop the engine and trans as one unit. Engine only has 55k miles so clutch should be okay.

So your not going to even take off transmission to check it?

I believe Mr 2gr swapper guy didn't check either
