With the 3 speed what kind of rear end gearing are you going for? 2.93?

really. if you gotta ask your going to have a lot of trouble doing it. front subframe is cut all to pieces and modified to allow the engine to fit through, motor mounts to be attached, and rack and pinion to be attached to. rack has to be moved to the front and you will have to change to a rack that is meant to work up front such as a mustang or a pinto rack. if you want power steering that has to be custom. steering shaft has to be custom. hubs have to be swapped around for the rack to attach in the front, brake lines have to be moved to the front. trans tunnel and fire wall have to be cut out if you dont want to raise the car up real high like they do with the krugel kit. cooling system has to be custom. drive shaft will have to be custom built. trans crossmember. rear subframe has to be removed and thrown it the trash. buy either a solid axle or a irs rear subframe out of something irs from factory and make it fit. you will have to cut the whole rear end out of the car if you want the ride height lower than the krugel kit. rear crossmember and link mounts for rearend. c-notch frame rails if you want it lower than krugel kit. most people use vertical coil overs like mine. custom rear brake lines and parking brake. custom fuel system with fuel cell. since the rear end will be 5 lug if you want to use a mustang one then you will either have miss matched wheels or have to do a 5 lug conversion or redrill hubs (i did the 5 lug conversion using parts from a mazda3). custom wiring, gauges, and ecu. i did a lot more custom stuff b/c of the turbo system... this makes it all sound so simple to and im probably forgetting 1/2 of it. ive spent 3 years and 1150 posts on this thread doing it... good luck
i got the cliff notes. guess i need to brush up on my welding skills if i go thru with it. i have no problem engineering something to make it worth. the only think i lack right now if fab/welding skills, only bc i've never been anything more than oxy-acetylene and a lil stick welder. hm.
if i did, i would leave it n/a. a cam only ls1 should propel a 2800 pound well into the 10's if it'll hook.

2:73, 3:08, or 3:27 are 3 most common depending on year and car it came from.

you know you want it Mike

wondering about why power steering needs to be custom other than the lines themselves.
