How many vehicles did you have to move to get to it? Why a manual, are you a glutton for punishment? :lol
I think if I was going to do it all over again, I'd go with a c4 with c5 bellhousing, torque converter and flexplate.

Is this the one you're planning on offroading? If so, eeeeeeek on the manual. That's a lot more work than I wanna do on trails, make it hard to hold your beer while trailing, I mean water bottle...lol.

Who's arguing? Difference of opinion does not equal argument.

Is the front clip getting replaced, or is there some other reason that you removed it?

I think you should A) Sell one of Russell's trucks so you can get your SOHC or B) Just take one of Russell's SOHCs, so you can C) write up a SOHC swap article for the site. :D
