Well I've been able to work on my swap a bit in the last month and I finally got most of the engine done. Just mocked up the belt pulleys and low mount engine set up I got from Fierorog.



Still got a few things to paint on the engine yet, just wanted to make sure everything fit.

Looks nice and clean.

Your only limitations are set from within, by a lack of vision.  But to have vision alone leaves the process idle.  Ergo, without action your thoughts are worthless.

looking good but don't forget to swap valve covers from side to side to make oil changes a lot easier after the swap is done

hope you installed new gaskets and also replaced the lower intake gaskets with the newer aluminum ones as the engines like to leak fluids

Yeah I bought the complete gasket kit from top to bottom. The only thing I didn't do is pull the bottom end apart ie: bearings, rings, pistons.
