    I had one.......never really got to test it in the mud.  I do know that due to the fitment of everything, snorkeling is almost impossible!  I wasnt able to come up with a good way to do it so I never did.  It runs great, sounds great, power delivery is night and day difference.  But like any swap, they have their quirks.  Its never going to look 100% stock....so if that bothers you, dont do it.  The shifting wont be quite as smooth as stock.....probably going to use more fuel....and you have to expect problems at least for a little while.

    Aside from that and the cost, its great!  I have comtemplated doing it again.....just cant justify the cost and  dont have the time to commit to it.
