E30LS1 Swap Guide

E30 LS1 site is dead and it sounds like Garrett isn't really doing the guide download/USB anymore. I'm looking for a way to get it. anyone have any ideas?

Sikky kit is definitely worth every penny but gets expensive especially after you add in headers.

Also was looking into doing a lot of the fab work myself as well just to keep the budget down.

I plan can get the Sikky kit but would like to review the pdf. Any chance I get a copy. If so, let me know what I owe you for it.

I had sent sladek a message last year. I was going to offer my drawings for the way I did my swap. That's only if you want something similar to what I built or you're willing to add in accessories that you want.

Iím doing a 1UZ swap in my e30. If there was a kit would be buying it at this point. Any v8 swap is so much more work than you think!
