    It would probably be worth your while to put the Hydro tranny in and fab the lines, pedals, and all. If not a ZC tranny or 88-91 CRX/Civic Si tranny. Much better ratios for the higher reving Z6. Does the Motor work with the stock mounts?

    Hey man...its really not worth the hassle!!!
    first off ou have to move the mounts, then change all the wiring...its alot of work!!
    I was looking for a first gen or a second gen and do the same with it...but i decided differently...and i'm not a lazy person
