98 Saturn SC2 with Warp 9 and adaptor plate

I have a 98 Saturn SC2 with a Warp9 motor and adapter plate installed. I'm asking 2500 but will consider less. Please contact me if you would like to see more pictures. I also created two metal battery brackets made from angle iron. I started working on this a few years ago, but just don't have any fee time.

I'm located in the Scranton PA area.

More info would be great. Did you make the adapter plate or buy it? Where from? The transmission is standard, correct? How did it shift before? New clutch or old? Driven since the motor was installed (even a little with a 12v battery)?
Thanks for the reply. I'm going to do some research on the support bearing issue. Do you have any pictures of the bearing that would give me a better idea of what needs to be fabricated?

Is the adapter clutched or clutchless?
Does the band you have include any provision for mounting the bearing to it yet?

I'm interested, but I also just bought a new welder and cash is tight. Not sure if it could be transported for what I'd consider reasonable (less than $200), I'm around 85 miles or less, right down 81.
Sorry for jumping in, but I have a '97 SL with a WarP9 and an EA adapter myself. :)

I just wanted to share another driveshaft support option:

I had a racing shop down the street make this and the motor mount for me. Since these cars are identical the template they have should fit yours as well.
Awesome, thanks for that info. Looks like there might be more than one way to skin a cat. How much did you pay to have it made up?

I will look into the U-haul option, I do have access to a truck. I'm wondering how to get it on a hauler as I think the ramps assume you can drive onto them.

I've seen adapters so you can mount your receiver-mounted winch and a trailer hitch simultaneously. I do have a winch, so that may be an option unless I'm overlooking something simple or obvious
