well, i plan on building a 6 bolt motor and dropping it in my 98 2g.....i've read and read on everything from the type of fluids to use, to the type of CAS to heres my thing, i've tried the magnus site, rre, even the tech guid on here....but its not exactly what i'm looking for....being that this would be my first rebuild, i was wondering if anyone had a link or anyway that i can get kinda like a step by step on how to do the 6 bolt i said i'm breaking my cherry on building this motor, so i want to get a step by step to be sure i dont mess anything up......thanks
I can certainly understand where you're coming from. I just recently finished my first motor rebuild with a six bolt in my 2g. I can tell you from experience you're not going to find a step by step manual explaining every little step you need to do. The only resources I can give you that you don't already have listed are: Just a online message board of people that have done the swap and have useful information on what needs to be done. Basically has everything you could do to a dsm and a lot of info and tech articles this site is just a guide around the engine bay and show you what things are and where things are located etc.

I would also definately find a dsm manual cd. You can usually find them on ebay for a few bucks. It's the same book as Mitsubishi uses. It will go through step by step on how to change timing belts, rebuild motors, clutch removal, etc.
Im sure I or a lot of other people on this board would be glad to help you if you get stuck in a certain part of the rebuild. Just make sure you've done your homework if you're building a bare block, and double check all your work when you do something.
