When I did the swap, I was not a part of this community and actually had no idea it was possible! lol, but no, it was just another Type I my mechanic ordered. It had about 40,000 miles on it when it was swapped in. And yes, the tranny is original. Still runnin strong!
as far as the steering rack goes... I'm not sure how much it will cost, my mechanic told me not to really worry about it until it gets very bad. But honestly, the leak is so minimal I have topped it off (not even that much) once since the beginning of December '07.
and I will try to get some new pics up either later today or tomorrow!
