Don't worry, I've got plenty of rusty bolts left.

That is going to be a mean GP, I'd love to have all that in my SSEi. Luckily I've got a spare bonne now for when the SSEi eats it'* transmission.

Sure Steve..

Len happened to say the right thing on a forum and be local enough to pick up my old motor. He already had the IC and Gen V so he didn't need that from my old setup. Basically though..it'* nearly the same setup that was in my Bonne.

It made one heck of a ground pounding super Bonne that scared most cars off the road. Now it'* time for that motor to show the GP locals how it could be.

Stopped at WW Grainger yesterday for some NPT plugs and fittings for the the FMHE. Need to plug a couple of holes from meth or nitrous in the LIM and then it'* on and it'll be time to pull the drivetrain out of the car.

Downside is I'm outta town for the next four days. Dan..is this what it feels like to have work and not be able to touch it? This sucks.

I bet if we got you and Dan together, you could probably swap an engine out of a bonneville faster than some places do an oil change = P

Well Tommy... let me run down the last couple of days for you.
I've been sick and down for the count. Except I found a few hours each night in the garage.

Test fitting stuff the other night:

Apparently I missed a picture of it in the cradle, it went in like butter. Sometimes you can't ask for things to go easier and that'* just how this slid into the engine bay.

After I tossed this in, a tow truck arrived with a silver Daytona GTP with a dead trans. That was swapped out, test driven etc and left by 11pm.

Dan and I together, would knock them out w/o a question.
