That's what I keep reading. Trying to make everything work together. I've seen that rotary works has a swap kit that includes almost everything. Has anyone used the kit and had any success?

You're missing the entire point.... the entire point is to the best of my knowledge, no one has developed a "kit" that includes the needed electronics and software to make EVERYTHING work the way it should.
I've got a GT, which means I have all the goodies including the DSC which works EXCEPTIONALLY well. I will not swap an engine unless I can retain all the factory goodies as they were intended. The electric power steering is easy to overcome as is the ABS. However, the dash (not being lit up like a fucking xmas tree) and the DSC are a little harder to make work. And again, to the best of my knowledge, no one has a kit to make that work.

The spare tire is an option.

Update, I've installed some gauges. I'll be installing my wideband as well, as soon as I can get the vent gauge pod.

No, I haven't gotten a Cobb Accessport yet. It's on my list of things to get.

I want to already have it, when I do get to that faze. Work is slow, so progress is going slower than I'd hoped. Believe me, I'm not one to rice out their car. Everything I do has a purpose and done with taste. What I'm finding out as far as the rew swap is concerned, most people don't run ps or a/c, just to be able to have it. I don't think it's a good trade off.

Well, consider that I ran the dyno at a rotary shop for a number of years, get asked repeatedly to tune peoples cars, and I didn't add a wideband to my 8 because it's useless. I like spartan dashes, and all these gauges everywhere looks like horseshit to me.

I feel like running AC is a matter of mounting a compressor, pretty easy, and running PS is a matter of feeding one or two signals to the PS ecu... again, relatively simple. Making the DSC work but cutting the throttle seems like a bit of work though, and when someone figures that out..... the 8 will become a monster.
