I have 2 questions that I really hope someone can give me insight on. Please.

1. Gen III engine - I ned to run it outside of the car. I can fabricate the engine stand, the cooling, but all I have is the engine & the computer with wires hanging all over, don't even know where to start - Just pitch all the wiring & put on stand-alone computer? Why you ask? I want to work on the engine outside of the vehicle, I don't want to install it then spend months trying to figure out the electronics.

2. All JDM engines seem to come with all-wheel drive transmissions. I need two wheel drive. What is a good 5 speed 2WD trans?

This is all going into a Toyota Sera by the way....

Not really sure what you are talking about here. Is this the 1ZZ engine? The most common application of this in the US was in the Corolla, which is front wheel drive. Don't know about Japan.

And, what the heck is a Sera?
