Default 4.8 ls swap dirt cheap

ok so let me start off with i am new here.beend reading a whole lot on everysite i can find.now for the ones that are rotary purists i really dont care that u think i should swap a rotary engine back into my car.it is getting a ls based engine regardless of what other people think its my car plain and simple.

i have found a 4.8 with wiring and ecu for $550 pulled

now i have some questions

how many wires can i strip the 4.8 harness down to run. pics if u have any
i want bare bones harness with check engine light. not paying 500 for someone to make one.

what do you guys do for a cheap drive shaft not paying $320 for one.is there a yoke from a diff. car that will fit the rx7 drive shaft just hhave to lenghten or shorten the tube?

what about engine mounts i really dont want to pay granny speed shop there stuff is high. is there any one who has done custom setup like reinforcing the stock cradle and using universal ls mounts.

anybody do there own trans crossmember ill be using 4l60

also fuel pump the 7 has a new one but will it run the ls motor or will i need to swap a diff. one into it

i have found basically the same radiator as grannys for $130 shipped

.my budget is no more than $2000 i have a pretty damn clean fc no engine or trans in it so i want to build it to a nice summer cruiser

also if someone has these parts they want to sell for less than new price i might beinterested in some of them thnx alot
