Sorry everyone. I'm not ignoring, but saving all the messages.
After the transmission swap, I developed a leak (4 of them). Fuel, oil, coolant and gear oil. Had to REMOVE the transmission again, replace all the seals, then put it back in. Had to remove half the engine, to replace a hard oil line, and a couple coolant lines. Then had to REMOVE the intake again to fix a fuel leak.
Now, I have to deal with the fact that I have a suspected rod knock (yep, what luck!), and the fact that my poor roommate just totalled his new STi, so we have to deal with that as well.
So sorry for not getting back with everyone on a timely basis. Again, I am not ignoring you, I'm saving the PM's and getting back with the people in order of what they sent me. I have well over 70 PM's, and hundreds of emails that I have to get through. So until I can get an accurate shipping quote, that is when I will reply.
For anyone wondering, no parts have been parted off this car yet, so anyone who has PM'ed me for parts, those PM's are still saved, and I will get back to you soon. I'm doing my absolute best, thanks for being patient.
