    don't forget the new starter because i ran into that problem when i did mine. also i'm still rolling around on my auto ecu because when i put the manual ecu in (same code as the auto) it would crank but not start, still trying to figure that problem out. there is a metal bracket that hangs down from where the gear selector cable went through, make sure your shift linkage doesn't scrape on that because it is very annoying and loud. other then that good luck it should only take about a weekend at the most. i had mine done in a day but then i had to wait until the next day for the new starter.
    almost forgot you will need a new starter bolt that is an inch longer than the old one, same goes for the front motor mounts because the new one is about an inch thicker than the old one.
