Alden-I don't drive it much. The Pacific NW is rainy in the winter months and hot in the summer months. Today it is 103F!
Pretty soon I will paint it and install a line lock and hydraulic clutch pedal.

Mick, see the first page for pics and details of the trans.

The question is, why is the front clip being replaced?

I'd love to take that floorpan for a drive too :)

I have driven my Baja as a floorpan with a 1915cc VW motor, and a mates SWB manx as a floorpan with a turbo 1600. It's good fun :)

no budget on that build - or mine for that matter.

'Joel' and 'jakriz' have some pretty good info on self builds though.

My build thread is below in my signature if that helps.

it just takes an adapter plate and flywheel availble from lots of places

not trying to sound harsh but unless your "budget" is $8k or more forget the STI engine
these arent engines you can be cheap with, if you try and install one on a tight budget you will end up with car that has electrical problems, overheating issues, broken drivelines etc
