Itís auto so you can leave the trans and AG in the car. Or yank with the driveline and engine bolted together it will all fit out the top.
Any 01+ t5 engine is the way to go, 03+ gets some inprovements. P1 single piece exhaust manifold gasket. Japanifold or R manifold. Probably needs an 18t CHRA while itís out. Never easier to do pcv banjo bolt, control arms and heater core junction. If you do all the work yourself and go full bluebox on all parts youíre looking at about $1500 all in.
