You going to do it in the cold vs hang out til it'* slightly warmer? Congrats on scoring a good motor.

You'll like the way the passenger dogbone on the trans holds the tailshaft up and you won't need to support it. Plus..you already had the TA mount out and it'll pop right back out for you w/o issues. and you took the trans out, so those bolts won't fight.. heck, toughest part of the job will be pulling the rear header off the manifold and letting it lay there on the trans.

Pfft... with it being cold, I'd drop it on the engine stand, rip the LIM, rockers and front cover. zip the old out, new in and button it back up, drop it in and enjoy.

BTW, please don't rely on Torque for KR. The other forum with the info on it is saying that KR isn't showing and the app designer is "kinda" looking into it. No word from him that it'* going to work.
