The biggest thing I would worry about would be having all the parts and tools you will need. We're actually doing my full drivetrain swap in my driveway right now, lol. Before you do anything I'd talk to Will (WJM), he may be willing to come down and do it somewhere local, or if nothing else you could take it up to the dealership where he works. Good luck with the swap.


Drew, it's good to hear from you again, (you came up to greer and let me drive your wagon a year or so ago).
I think I have most of the tools, and will buy what I don't. I too think it can be done in the garage and my plan is to do a full 6mt install as soon as I can get the guy in gear that I am supposedly getting it from.
Can you tell me more about WJM?
