Lots of info here on the .org. It will fit....some things will need modifications....motor mounts, some brackets for accessories, intake, mods for intercooler/intercooler piping, etc.
My True Story:
My older sister/husband sent me a selfie of them taking a test ride in a newer Corvette. They posted, "Going for a joy ride in our "dream car"
I immediately posted back......" Why dream small, I can put you in the driver's seat of a neon for a fraction of the price".......

U-Pulls are like a box of Chocolates.......you never know what you're going to find...... ;)

I used a 2004 PT auto as my donor......and just now realized that was over ten years ago!!! Time flies!!! Still driving it like someone else's stolen car :smile:

My age mid 70s and the fact I have to get ready for the move to the other side of the grass ...., but even so, if it weren't for the shop being small and filled with remnants of other projects .... if I had a clean slate with nothing else on the agenda ....

I guess I will use this for a motivator to get right and then maybe. But, I passed on it for now.

I still have a decent RT to drive, just not super fun.
