while i'm doing this, are there any other related upgrades (aux trans cooler, etc) that I should do?

I'll try to find a splash shield at one of the local junkyards, is it the same piece between the SE and the SSEi?
Don't know re the splash shield, but even if you had to drill some new holes, as long as the thing could be made to fit, that would seem to be all you need. Maybe others will chime in.

willwren recommended a low-pressure drop cooler that breathed new life into my old tranny. I bought 4454, but if I had it to do again would have bought 4490. Transmissions work better and last much longer when they don't get hot. This cooler automatically compensates for temperature and is really easy to install. The install kit is complete.

that sure is a nice cooler, i will definately look into getting that...

I definately want the transmission to last as long as possible, as the cost of a full trans rebuild is probaly more than this car'* worth...

i started it for the first time in about a month, started on first crank and sounds great , with the exception of the horrible single exhaust and no resonator that is... but that'* work for another day.

thanks for the advice
