Default FINALLY! The swap on the Bonneville is underway!

I am not one of those guys that likes to not know what I am doing when it comes to vehicles. Thus the reason for joining this forum. To read, search, read, learn, and execute! I read read read read and then when I thought I had it, I asked questions, read more then started the task! I started early this morning and am now ready to just about drop the new engine in. Here are a few pics. Any tips you all have are appreciated.

Is this a straight up engine/PCM swap? If so, it'* easy. But if this is a engine with a different PCM, a tune will be needed. What engine are you dropping in?

That'* easier. For some reason I thought this was a L36 top swap.

Looking nice. Did you plan for the fuel lines not fitting overly well? Maybe a braided swap with swageloks?

Made me laugh when I saw the crossover removed. Sucks how it'* the only thing that hits the stand in a full roll.
