      Damn, I need to find a clutch kit it seems, they come with a flywheel by chance? Time to hit up the search button for the online vendors.

      The transmission cross brace is different from automatic to manual. I don't know if the mounts them selves are the same or not but I replaced mine. You might as well put in a new giubo and CSB for the driveshaft while your under there. You will need brake fluid for bleeding the clutch line. There are some rubber grommets for the clutch lines as well that go in the firewall.

      Thats about it. It is pretty straight forward. When you go to put in the clutch master cylinder do not tighten the eyelet that connects it to the pedal very tight. That thing needs be to able to rotate as the clutch is pushed in. Otherwise It will snap off while you are driving. Dont ask me how I know.
      CSB = Center support Bushing? Sucks having to track down parts, but at least I'll get most with EJ's kit which is cool. Need that Drive shaft like crazy! Why oh why does it have to rain the day after I get the car to at least look it over.

        Center Support Bearing (about 20 bucks). Hit up BluntTech for the bits. Or if your ballin you could do the Metric Mechanics light weight fly wheel and 240mm clutch for $900.

        Don't worry. I went through the exact same thing a year ago. We will get it figured out. Post up every bit you have for the swap.

          Yep, just email Blunt and load up on a bunch of new parts. You will be glad you did while everything was apart, even if it does add more cost to the whole process. Especially clutch related items. Stock clutch kit should include the basics, and just pick up an M20 single mass flywheel (hopefully included with the trans) and have it machined

            Hahaha just went by the powdercoater's house. He is an honest guy and his whole family kind of joins in. I saw some motorcycle parts he had just finished and they looked great.

                        Fogs are awesome. Swapping bumper shells now too. W00t.

                          Fogs are great targets for gravel and track fod. I removed them from the valance I am stripping for my car. One has a broken lens, but I may post em up here for trade fodder at some point..

                            I feel like a total n00b writing this, but whatever. So, I've got my front bumper with support off (88+ plastic bumper.) I'm switching bumper shells. I can't seem to get mine off the support. I've got almost all the little tabs unhooked from the support, but I can't seem to get it to come all the way off. Any tips?

                              Hey guys, Phil and myself my are talking while he removes my new engine and we're curious about the possibility of me using the flywheel off this car (its auto) and just have it machined or buy a new oem?

                                Autos don't have flywheels, they have flex plates.
