Love it. Are you going to be the first one to have that motor in an s12?
Infrequently driving an s12.

There are a handful of people out there with the motor in S13s, but I believe I will be first into the S12.

I don't recall this swap into an S12.  With the standalone it should be fairly easy once the mounts are fabricated.  Ignore the hate that you anticipate.  Just don't butcher the V6 cross member if you can avoid it please.
I was afraid all the five gallon buckets of pain stacked four high were going to fall over

That's what I'm hoping for!  I know I'm definitely going to run into issues with the front sway bar, there's no way around that.  And there's a chance I'll need to do some modification to the trans tunnel for fitment.  Honestly though, I don't think there's going to be too many fitment issued based on my preliminary measurements.

Tell ya what, ship me over a 4cyl cross member and I promise I won't hack up the V6 one :idea: :grinwink:

I wish I had a notch.  I'd trade you the members and start down the VG33 swap road with the notch.  I miss my notch . . . need S12 in my life again.
