Well, there is an article on it already...Made By PapJohn in the tech section. What I have compiled is a follow up to where he left off. I added in things he forgot to mention, gave exact part numbers, shed light on some harder parts of the swap, gave info on the different types of transmissions, and tossed in some more pictures.

Please send me a copy of those notes on the t-45 swap... Its doubtful that I'll ever be able to afford to do it but it will be a great read nonetheless. Plus, I may be able to do it and then wish I had gotten them...

Please send them to [email protected]

Thanks

Couldn't you just post the info in this thread or something so you don't have to send out 500 emails to everybody? it would make it easier for people to find it in the future too.
