So, I got mt battery tray reinstalled and soaked all the bolts I can see for the motor mounts and tranny bellhousing for anticipation of my soon engine install when I noticed the fender liner on the backside of my transmission is missing or maybe never existed. My gripe is i can see the backside of my wheel from the top of the engine bay. Is this normal for 3Gs?

I just installed mine..
The flat end should be on top when you mate them together.. you will definitely see the huge different.. the shifting is more precise.. best $10 upgrade..
Drove my car just around my buddies shop yard and I can already tell a difference in the shifting. I am convinced my shifting problem was the bushings all along

If you have time, change the clutch fluid and you will feel how much better the transmission is...(y)

Funny you mention, I bought a new sla e cylinder and hydraulic line when I do my engine. The old look really bad the rubber around the push rod is just before splitting.

My transmission liner was missing when I got my car. Two bolts hold to the frame of the car at the top, and push button clips secure it to the main fender liner. I believe they are all the same between 4cyl/ 6cyl and auto/ manual transmissions. Local junkyard had it for cheap.

That sounds like what I am missing. It looks like road debris could easily be kicked up into the engine bay. If I get time this weekend, I have a pull a part near me that has a few 3Gs. I am assuming Stratus/Sebring would be the same? Maybe Galant

Im not 100% sure about the Galant, but I pulled one from an Eclipse for my Stratus coupe and it was a perfect fit.

Has anyone used the Glowshift gauges recently? I cannot stand not having an oil pressure gauge so I am adding this and a volt gauge to a double gauge pod. I do not want to buy the sandwich plate adapter if I don't have to. Anyone know fitting to buy to keep the oil pressure light while adding a gauge? I just ordered some fitting from McMaster so, I am assuming they might have something that would work. Tinted 7 Color Oil Pressure Gauge

Ok, so I am assembling what I call the coolant manifold on my new engine. Is their suppose to be a gasket along with the rubber seal for thermostat housing or just the rubber ring that fits around the thermostat? I feel like I am missing something here.

The rubber O-ring around the thermostat is all that seals the thermostat cover. Nothing else is needed. You do need a sealant when you connect the entire housing to the cylinder head if you took it off though.

Edit- Looking at the service manual for the V6 there are two gaskets the connect the entire housing to the motor.

I have the gaskets. You need sealant too?
