Any suggestions of the best thread to post my question, I'm new to the forum world and looking through them all is crazy lol so many, thanks again!
Hey my starter is directly under my engine between the block and the gearbox
But with that said I drive an evo but i would think it would still be around there somewhere.

I personally just replaced my catalytic converter with the rrm test pipe. Helped with a leak I was having. And it sounds faaaaantastic lol. Definitely worth the money. Still have to take the car to an exhaust shop tho, the flex pipe is leaking.

tried to replace the clock in my daughter's lancer. got a nice used one. I assume that the a/c bezel around the clock just pops out, but it was very resistant and I was afraid of messing something up. have to check further on the best way to get it out.

got the clock in today. figured out how to remove it. I thought the bezel with the a/c vents around the clock came out by it self, but, guess not. took the whole trim piece out that is the gray burled plastic piece. had to remove the bezel around the hvac and the bezel around the gauge cluster. then it came out. replace the clock with one you can actually see now.

How much is "not much?" And how long did the swap take?

what i can tell you is that it took him and one other person some time to complete. time as in years, never asked how long actually but i knew it took some ... as to the cost i never asked him that when i saw the car in person at a meet once. i was more focused on the car itself and the work he did to it...

If you're asking because you want to do it too, just stop right there lol...

The bottom line that we all should understand, as car guys, is that if you do the work yourself, instead of paying a professional to do it, the costs accrued are substantially less.

That being said, I'm not a mechanic by trade, and I did all of this work as a hobby. I had to learn how to weld/fabricate, and I did all of my research on my free time, which translated into a long build time, as OZR Lancer mentioned.

Yeah I did replace the wires. The one that linked the temperature knob to the gear was jacked up. I actually replaced both.

It was just a want to know basis. I wouldn't have enough resources and help to attempt this swap. I wanted to perform the 4G69 swap (engine & tranny) and ended up fixing the donor car since it was only 65000 miles on it with no frame damage.
