Thanks!

To be honest not much. I just used the rb30 mounts, and I think I had to put the rb25 alternator and power-steering pump on. Street Commodores did an article on it around the same time I was which was really helpful.

Not much harder to put an rb26 in though, would be what i'd do if I could start over again.

Yeah I should, continually changing stuff though, so just a bit hard to have current pics. I'll see if I can find some more recent ones.
