Post here (http://zilvia.net/f/chat/297481-small-questions-thread-search-first-use-instead-making-new-threads.html) for that.

Punctuation & grammar are your friends.

If all you've done is brakes and oil...RB swap isnt for you. It's more complicated than an SR swap and cost more due you needing mount kits and a custom driveshaft.

Dude... RB swaps are awesome... I'm from Hanford- miss home; but NOT the stupid emissions BS... Hopefully you have avenues for emissions.

And it has begun...Mckinney mounts are definitely not the best option for mounts.

You wont learn by just doing, you need to do alot of reading. You can start with this...
