Is there a T5 B234 swap thread/tutorial?

I'm hoping there's a list of parts I'll need to put the b234 in my 99 9-3.
I know I'll have to swap intake manifold, and all accessories/brackets, but what about front case and "transmission plate"?

Is there a better oil filter housing/cooler?
I assume I'll need the b204 oil pan.

I didn't research, but I already bought the GS 9-3 engine mounts. I assume they'll fit.

Can anyone point me to a thread that covers this?


and last...
Anyone want to talk me out of just swapping the 234 and hx into the Wagon?

so to swap the b234 into the wagon you will want to reuse the t7 timing cover and head as well as you will have to use the t7 head gasket.

easy as pie.

What are the chances I can fit the HX and early 9000 manifold in stock location in the 9-5?

is there enough room behind the radiator for an HX without top-mounting?

this I have no experience with, I think pete93t on here had put a holset on a 9-5 before though.
