    Pulling a G5M from the junkyard soon. What's recommended to replace before installing? Got clutch, trans fluid. What else? Seals?

    Shift forks. Diff if you're going to abuse it with an LSD.

    What are you pulling the G5M out of? If it's a ZX2 your going to want to grab an Escort 5th and replace the ZX2 one for better highway cruising RPM's.
