    not a ton of progress due to some personal issues going on this month. Im trying to devote an hour a day to SOMETHING on the project since ill be traveling a bit for work this month and wont have as many weekends. i have the last week and a half off and planning on going hard on it to get some progress done.

    last night i got the motor mostly buttoned up and ready to go into the chassis.

    the oilpan was off, the waterpump needed new gaskets and the crank pulley needed back on.


    got all those buttoned up and cleaned off the intake manifold mounting surfaces.


    not a ton of work but some none the less.

    i also pulled a 4l60 bellhousing that i had and slapped it onto the testfit block in the chassis. Rigged the motor to the core support so it doesnt lean back on the mounts as much and i could remove the wood block i had under the oilpan holding it up. Tonight im getting it up on jackstands so i can get under it and assess the tunnel situation and do some measures to see if its going to work with the 4l80 or if i am going to need to do some hammering.

    got the car up on stands yesterday and started measuring the tunnel for clearance on the 80e. with my current engine mount adapter plates it was going to be a nightmare to fit. im ordering some different ones from holley/hooker that move the engine down and forward in the engine bay and allow for much less trans tunnel modification. and for 60 dollars i can just turn around and sell my current ones without losing much/any cash.

    What current motor mounts are they? I know a dude (as usual) that may need them.


    Also, if you don't pressure wash that engine I'm going to pee on your tire when I see you. Actually, let me just jinx you now. If you don't get that shit off your motor you're going to catch fire like a goth millennial did to the burban you got the motor from.

    they are the UPR adapter plates that let you mount a stock mustang 4.6 motor mount to a LS motor.

    im not pressure washing it. so take that negative juju and shove it up your yea.
