Dont get me wrong strip only isnt bad but my motor was built to drive so it was real disappointing to have it sit in the garage on weekends there was no racing or no budget .

Oh the cops used to love me around here too , but I have been a good boy for a few years now .


P.S. It is never a good idea to tell a cop that is being a ***** that , " he is the one who is lucky I didnt try to run because my car will do 110 in first whats that POS cop car do 85 topend "

Well got the motor and trans in had to do some more cutting had to cut out a notch in the front crossmemder for the oil pan so I could lower the engine down and and trans to level everything out. Centered the motor and trans in the frame rails for the 9" rearend when I get it narrowed going to put the 3rd member in the center so I can run the same length axles on both sides.Going to lower the rack when we pull the engine and trans back out for the the header will have some more room. I going to have to get a remote oil filter adampter no room for the oil filter.Got to cut the front motor plate to clear the hatchit on the front didn't think about it when I bolted in on until I got to looking after we got it set in no biggy I did't put any gaskets on the water pump.It's more work than I thought it was going to be but it all in building your own for the first time.I don't think I would be this far along if it wasn't for Rick keeping me stright on it he has set up a few and is a big help on this project,I would be lost and it would take 3 times longer to get everything right with out his help.For the ones who don't know him he is the one I go to the track with he has the red Mazda RX7 with the 557 BBF in it that I post vids of.Heres some pics of what we got done today.

Looking good , kinda jealous at your engine setback . Do you know if they made a manual rack for these trucks ? That would be nice in both our trucks .

How much are you lowering the body ? That will be sweet with the tires tucked up in the wheelwells .
