I'm one driveshaft and a starter away from having everything I need to do the swap. I'm planning on writing up the whole process here with photos etc. If there is anything anyone would like me to focus on or ensure to capture in the photos, now is the time to ask!
I should be doing the 5th gear set swap in the next couple of weeks, and then the transmission swap in July. I'm going wiht a .658 5th gear set which should have me around 2750 RPMs @ 70mph on the highway. Should quiet things down a lot, reduce engine noise, and increase fuel economy.
