    I think you should sell the LS tranny and purchase a GS-R/B16/Type R gearbox instead...

    Nope. No wheels. GS-R or B16 tranny.

    Is this your daily driver then? Why the urgency to get it on the road so quickly?

    If you have another car to drive then I wouldn't even bother with the temporary D-series swap. That's just money wasted. The only way it would make sense is if you have an engine, tranny, and everything else you'd need to install it just laying around ready to go...

    stock mounts
    d16y7 block [with fresh timing belt the reason i asked if i could use the cam gear of the y7 with z6 head]
    d16z6 head with intake manifold
    98 ex tranny
    shift linkages
    y8 exhaust manifold
    stock p28 ecu
