New wiring harness


throttle body


dash project


map sensor

fuel cell

head bolts and studs

connecting rods


still waiting on obvious parts like turbo and accessories and custom forged pistons if they ever get done.

as of current its going to be painted black

Motor mounts are being fabricated now. I ordered the require bushings and hardware related to mount the engine and trans.

Engine mounts will be a compact tubular design but will be extremely strong.

I have skipped painting the engine bay until last. I want to get this engine in and running then will make it pretty.

I ran the psi harness and looks like I will mount the ecm in the glove box as well as the psi fuse panel. I will mention the harness looked pretty nice but I have already found a few very loose clips a few actually fell off. I will go through and repair and replace what is not acceptable or up to my standards.

Radiator fits great the new mounts arrived sat.

Soon as the supplies ordered arrive I will have some pics of the engine and trans mounted in the engine bay!!!

Good luck with engine management and fitting that piping I am certainly interested in seeing the final result if it ever gets finished.
