if i were to get an SC300 with a W58 and swap everything over, what else would i still need? i wanna put a list together so that when i have the cash i can just buy all the parts i need and just get this done in a couple days with my buddy cz he has a garage and lift we could use. my car is my DD so i can't have it off the road for longer than a few days cz of work, i would probably take a week off or something but even then i would need to get this done pretty quick. i've read of ppl doing a swap in a day by themselves with a lift so im guessing its possible. i just need a definitive list of what i need and how much it would cost.

so u would have
Driveshaft
Trans mount
Transmission
Pedals
Master cyl.

You would still need
Bellhousing adapter
T56 adapter
T56 slave
Flywheel
Clutch disk
Pressure plate
Custom lines

Yes it is relitivly fast to do the swap pulling the auto is the hardest part putting in the manual is easy and fast... w pylled the auto and put in the man. Same day plus pulled the man back out

will the car run differently if the ECU is thinking it's in neutral rather than in drive? i've always wondered that.

So I havent had big issues... I have noticed it is a bit sputty or jumpy (in neutral) after shifting to second in lower rpms but other than that no issues... if its in drive it acts up quite a bit but if you ignore all other wireing becides neutral to start switch its ok no big prob... now I need to work on getting a standalone... and I want to pull the engine again to redo the piston rings because I think they are starting to go... I already built the motor once but this will give me more opertunity to put cams and twin turbo it.... wont be for a while on that part again though... thete is variable resistance in the solinoids so getting the o/d light out I a almost imposible, but can be done by unhooking every sensor and plug and putting them all in to the car then wireing to drive gear and to neutral safty, this will put the light out
