Good luck with your swap!
Its probably best that you waited this long to do it. Getting parts from Tim has been a chore. I hear he has everything on the shelf now so that should finally be sorted out. He has been promising the A/C bracket for...oh...about 6+ mos now, maybe more. So like others have said, it will get sorted eventually. Hope he has the axle sizing sorted by now, some of the earlier kits had fitment issues including mine. I still haven't figured out a good way to make the shifting more solid and after reading that is a common problem.
Hytech makes a gorgeous, but expensive header for the swap. Worth the money in my opinion.
And as Exiged mentioned, getting burnt on used parts sucks, be careful what you buy used and from whom.
They pretty much covered everything else.
Money wise, if I would have it to do over again I would have fully built and turboed the 2zz, would have had enough $$$ left over to do suspension and transmission work for what I am into my swap. I did go with the Type R which drove the price up more than a normal K20 though.
