Thanks Matt, appreciate the motivation! Thanks for getting our little track rat corner of the internet up again, I missed it.

It took way too long to get this place going. Not a fan of the Canadian domain registry anymore. Anyway - no more thread hiijack. MORE V8!

Did the clutch install on the weekend. Made sure the TRANS-SIDE sticker was on the correct side!

So when is the car going to re-live up to the thread title post LS swap?

Next winter?

LOL! You're not the first person to ask that. Let's just say if I actually get this up and running I'm looking forward to enjoying naturally aspirated track time for quite some time.

Connected the torque tube last night.

Took some fiddling. To get the torque tube lined up straight down the tunnel when connected to the engine, the back of engine needed to shifted slightly to the passenger side from where I originally bolted it in place. I loosened the crossmember to body bolts, and the engine mount to cross member bolts, while the engine was hanging off the engine brace. That gave me the wiggle room to get the torque tube line up so it runs straight down the tunnel underneath the car. Once in a good position I torqued everything back down to mount the engine.

Cool! I especially like the bit next to the exhaust collector that looks like it was mercilessly beaten with a hammer.

The tin heat shielding needed a little persuasion to lay flat

Did the transmission install, a shot of the driveline from rear to front:

I'm no expert but i'd say that exhaust will be a touch loud.
