I need more TIME!

Default engine gone...replace tranny now or later?

OK i'm waiting for my engine to be done @ the machine shop. And I need to swap my tranny out.

Should I swap it out now while there is no engine....or wait and put the engine in without the tranny in there.... which would be easier??

Do both at the same time.

With the engine removed you're half-way there. Plus you can decide on a new engine/tranny combo if you so choose.

haha we have 2 sides....

I was thinking it might be easier to manuver the engine since its on a hoist. So I might just go ahead and swap the tranny. (since I'm using a friggin car jack to hold the tranny....anyway, and its gona suck with only 1 1/2 ft of clearance under my car)
