Somewhere on here a member "freight train"  has a really detailed  post of what he went through when he did his conversion.    His was a 673 non turbo to start.

It is a basic bolt in.   You will need to use the balancer and water pump off the 673.  The 237 stuff is too long and would run into the radiator.  I reused my front mount only because the 237 was missing.  I would suppose it is the same anyway?

Are you using the 5spd too?  You will need to do something with the clutch as that is likely a pull style and the B is push.  I'm still running my Triplex and have no issues.

I had to build my own air intake.  Was pretty simple using some 3 1/2" and 4" tubing and some silicone couplers.
