    good luck cramming it in there!

    look for a CVCC cause the engine bays are slightly larger. would be easier than a 1200..

    Fitting isnt going to be hard by any means. Ive alreay done first gen swaps. It will happen, dont you worry about that!

    The only thing holding me back right now is i cant drag home a new shell untill i get a new house. But with the 8k tax credit, i want to take advantage of means i'll be in a new house before spring!

    So for now ill bust ass on the motor and getting it ready to drop in!
