about the swap...
i have done it myself.... it's not too bad, you'll also need the brake lines from the rearend to the motor bay. and, you can use the brake system currently on the car... it's alot better if you get the master cylendr off of a v-8.... you will have much better braking then using the stock 4cyl parts.
if you go manual to manual, you'll also need the driveshaft, auto to auto, the drive shaft is interchangeable.
hope some of this helps! Daniel
