Engine, transmission, axles, ECU/wiring, custom motor mount(s)

I looked into this at one point. Glad I didn't. I owned an SVT and my SPI at the same time and was always more pleased to drive my SPI.

Of course, it would be cool to see SVT sedan...

Well, we haven't put all the numbers on paper yet, and we've done some extra stuff, and I'm anal about the details so.... We've got about $2200 total, without the extras. Hassle wasn't too bad, just took a while to reasearch everything and have all the little pieces together so it didn't turn out to be a two month project. We did it in two weeks and more than half of that was waiting on parts that we missed in the three months of research. VERY happy with the results! We're working on a How-To post that I hope to have up soon!
