hey thanks for the advise and i took that into consideration and decided to scrap the whole "frankin-mazda engine" and just do an engine swap. i'm getting a toyota 5rz (3.4L 240hp fuel injected V-6) and 5speed manual tranny. i figured that would be a better route since i needed to get a drive shaft even if i kept the mazda engine.

That sounds like a worthwhile project. Is there a big difference in engine weight? I wonder. Also hopefully you won't have to set the engine too far forward. I'm presuming you are not going to work with power steering, so I bring this up. Also wider tires will also contribute to steering effort.
