spectacular post! a back up of the pics should be put in the gallery here so we don't ever lose them. Some more driving and your short term fuel trims won't be adding so much fuel. Not only is this writeup good for a swap but for changing the belt and even the alternator.
I love my hr16 but with all these swaps I wouldn't have been too upset with a hatch with a self destructing mr18
. BTW your oil changes and driving habits are almost exactly like mine. I have 85k miles and just switched from 7500 mile changes to 10k. Nissan recommends 7500 on regular oil. So I figured with a good filter and synthetic I can stretch it to 10k. I've been ok so far.
