Are you going to stay with the w55 or upgrade it to something else?
yes w55 till it brakes lol
Did you need any spacers to clear the front wheels? It sounds like it's pretty close to inner upright.

are motor mounts custom or can you use the oem ones?
very simple swap, nothing custom at all! Motor came off at 4 tuesday, by 6 the 1j was already in. It uses back ur 2j mounts, u just have to beat the oil pan a little to clear the crossmember
