so i have a 94 st that need new rods an pistons and also has a lot of miles on it. so instead of fixing the old motor with a bunch of miles, i was thinking about converting to a 3sgte. i'v found stuff on here that the best way to go about it is to get a front clip so that i have everything ill need for the swap... do u guys agree? and i know that ill have to get a different tranny, so what would be the best tranny for the engine? i'v read that the tranny out of a solara migh be a better bet than the one out of an mr2, this true? they say i would have trouble making an mr2 tranny work and fit and the solara would be way easier. but which is the actual better tranny?

From what I've read the st will need some engine mount work to fit the 3sgte and I think most people go with the Mr2 tranny, I don't really know though
