4G63 Swap FB/FC

Hey so I have been searching and searching and have got some information but I wanna compile it all on here and get what else people know on here. Please no bs about rotary vs piston or what's a better swap I just want to discuss the 4G63 swap.
The reason I am inquiring about this is because I have a 93 4G63T 7 bolt out of a Talon tsi and I want to build a drag car that's not v8 like every single other drag car at my local track. Looking to use a TH350 as well. So here is what I know are needed

-Motor and transmission mounts
-Standalone and full wiring (keep stock harness to start or start fresh?)
- Relocate thermostat housing
- Custom intake manifold switch the throttle body to the other side
- Custom exhaust
- Adapter plate for TH350
-Diff / rear end work (suggestions?)
- Fuel lines and pump (possibly fuel cell ? or should I use stock tank?)
- lots of custom plumbing

Couple big questions for me are:
Will it work in an Fb only seen in a FC?
How to get the steering working right? use rx7 or talon parts?
Gauges all aftermarket?
And suspension setup?

Anything else im missing that you know I should know let me know I cant seem to find a whole lot and the projectzerog forums wont work for me.

If doing a piston swap into a RX7, this is one of the best options. Have even researched it a bit myself, my moons ago.

If you get a wide block 4G63 from the 80's, I can't remember the block code at this time, then a 2nd gen Turbo II transmission will bolt to it. You will also need the bell housing from a Mazda pickup though. This will make bolting it into a 1st/2nd gen easier, and provide a rather solid transmission.

That being said, your power and expected loads you plan to apply to your drive-train are also huge factors in determining your necessary drive-train.

Regardless, 1st gen FTW!
