how much will it cost you to get it rego'ed once you finish? My guess is for that money , just that money you could buy a cheap running ute.

most of the time I fix things properly, it ends up taking longer when I dodgie it because I have to do it again anyway.

If you have seen kits, they probably included the sump and mounts. Buying a kit would the easiest and cheapest cheapest way to do it. Even if you don't like the price.
I would fit the Commodore gearbox as well. It would save the cost of adapting the Ecotec to the Rodeo gearbox.
Then, to be legal on the road, an engineer's certificate will add at least $2,000.

Old is good.

I know when I did my TPI Chev swap we used HQ Chev mounts,
The wire harness WOW that was a different story
Long story short, I did mine back in the year 2000
If I was to do another swap, I would,
Buy the kit,
complete motor and box and shifter, and it should all just bolt into place
Don’t forget to check ya breaks if they need to be updated
Ask an Engineer, Before you spend any money first
And believe me, it will work out A Lot Cheeper
