We also started to fit the engine/ trans in the car. My goal is to retain the oem oil pan as well as use the oem brackets if possible. To accomplish this the engine will go back. way back, as well as some trimming to the car. Once again Brett to the rescue with his plasma cutter.
Because part of the firewall will be recessed, I'm thinking it might be cool to make a removable panel inside for access to the back of the engine.
I need to make more cuts to the car, then clean them up. So far it's looking good. clearance for the steering, headers, etc. The trans tunnel will need to be raised a bit to clear the t56 magnum.
The engine mounting still needs to be worked out but should be no problem.
I'll get back out to the garage tomorrow and make more ruckus.
