If anything it gives me more complete combustion.
You have a EGT sensor?

Everything is in the bay and he is working on the installing the gen V. Seems to be a slight issue with spacing between the Gen V and alternator. On the 96-99, there may be a nub....edit, make that part of the alternator that needs to be ground away to allow clearance. Air grinder is in operation as I speak to him

That'* funny... I was talking to Doug earlier and he had an air grinder in operation as well... lol.


Boosty, I am duly impressed by the progression of this project. That engine looks beautiful, and I can't wait to see how it runs when you get the tune dialed in. Keep us updated!

I'm inside...and pics are loading.

Ever know that you were the first person to do something? I'm feeling that right now and can offer lots of advice to the rest of the clubbers. Don't do a Gen V swap (cause I wanna be faster than you)

First up..I put the engine in the engine bay and went to put in the backwards bolt. Anyone that'* ever pulled the motor knows all about finding this little gem. The painted engine and the non painted transmission with the light placed in the A arm for vision...OMG the perfect shot. Here'* a little progression for anyone ever wanting to see it'* location.
First pic..look right of the strut and between the wheel well bottom edge and the rotor.

Next up..Oil pan and oil filter adapter...hence the first part to modify for my application.
The oil pan fits beautifully as expected

Overall..I am impressed and love it. BUT... there'* a small nub on the top of the oil filter adapter. Merely a piece of aluminum that needed to be ground off. Didn't know until the power steering pump didn't want to line up. If you compare the two adapters..it'* obvious where to grind now that we know it needs to be done.
I'll look around for pics of the adapter.
Some general pics of the motor in.. BTW..plugs, exhaust...everything is easy w/o power steering pump and the accessory bracket.

I ran into a couple difficult bolts ro do I say.. bolts that decided to be difficult. Then the power steering with the nub on the oil filter adapter and a couple other littlle things.. it should be ready ....but hey..I'm one guy and considering I put the flywheel on and dropped it in.. guess I'm far enough along for the night.
