Timing belts get old, and since you thought of it, do it.

Any exhaust can be made to fit anything, what's the religious reason to keep a NA'ish exhaust?

I think he's just trying to save money.

Definitely do your TB/WP. It's rubber. They just need to be replaced periodically like tires.

Existing clutch/flywheel can be re-used if it's still in good shape. Also inspect the pilot and throw-out bearings. Those usually need to be changed out.

On the exhaust, I'm pretty sure that all 1.8 heads (94-97, 99-00, 01-05) have the same exhaust port configuration. Whatever you had before should still bolt right up. Do an EGR delete if you can.

Yep this is exactly right. I have the OEM 94-97 header right now, and the 03 piece that I also have looks like an upgrade for when I put the 03 engine in. I also already have a 94-97 Borla catback, so I wanted to know if I could mate the two without any problems. Or, should I go out and buy a racing beat 94-97 header for when the 03 engine goes in.

I'll do the tb/wp and check the clutch. I've actually never had a clutch wear out on me, but I've replaced 3 due to noisy throw out bearings. What a pain. Definitely doing the EGR delete as well when everything goes in.

Thanks for the help.

Get a 94-97 rb header if you don't want to modify the 03 to fit your borland catback

Thread is over a year old, and my car has been running for probably 6 months now. But thanks

Never did get to the water pump and timing belt. Building a house right now - once I get moved that will probably be one of the first projects.
