    I just learned that my GSR has more than 60,000 miles. What would you all do before installing? Should I replace the timing belt? What else? Also, what do you all recommend I use for engine oil and transmission fluid. (I have LSD tranny)

    Thanks

    Front main is where the oil pump is, rear main is where the flywheel is. Get a helms, it does wonders.

    i agree with everything everyone has said already. Waterpump, timing belt, main seals, maybe some new gaskets, new fluids etc. It'll be a good idea to check a service manuel and see what they recommend to be changed as well!!!
