So finally finished my ls swap thanks to this site and all the awesome people that contribute. Special thanks to wutsaiu and spitsnauggle for all the great information.
So my fu in the a 20 engine spun a bearing with 72k on it. I owed money on the car and had to take out a loan to get another engine anyway so I decided I would go ls swap because I no longer trusted the boxer motor. Started with a 2013 Subaru BRZ, LS1 and t56 out of 2004 Pontiac GTO (approx 80k on both)for about 4k with all wiring gas pedal power steering ac etc. I was able to maintain all sway bars and strut tower bracing. Cable driven throttle body with some custom cut and weld on the gto pedal to fit and work off of stock location. Cx mounts and exhaust headers to stock exhaust with a variable exhaust cut so my neighbors wont hate me. Plasti dip paint job with a sprayer. Some custom el wire and James Bond buttons for lights and exhaust. Haven't tuned or dynoed yet so just stock 350ish hp.

May ask you how much cost?

I didn't keep close track but I would say maybe 8k. Engine and trans was the most at 4kish another 3kish with mounts and exhaust and another 1k in other stuff. Very rough estimate and probably on the low side in case my wife ever reads this. Actually putting the car up for sale now as well as the old blown fa-20 in case anyone is interested.

What is the LED strip lighting setup you got there? Cool!

El wire, very cheap flexible and can be run off of a couple batteries or a 12 volt power line.
