it does NOT bolt right up..except for the physical mounts
please do a search in technical as this has been covered MANY times

the short..the wiring harness sucks, as you have to splice it in to the current, but run the JDM ecu , etc. etc. etc..and you will need the tranny as well..and the list goes on
