      Thanks!!

      Here a little update,
      Getting it done bit by bit, need to put the fuelpump on it and paint that also.
      It has headers so no paint on them.

        Yes but its made in China i think so it cant handle the engine.. so i putted some blocks underneeth just for sure lol.
        Plan is when my clutch is here bolt the tremec on it and put them on the K member and slide it under the car.. think its the best way to put it in.. dont wanna mes with the whole shabang from above the car.
        Hope it works out with the headers bolted on the engine before i install it..

          You will be happier installing the headers afterwards. I'm fairly sure the center link and starter at a minimum will interfere.

            set the headers in the car and lay them back on the fenders
            Then install the engine
            The headers will be in place and much easier to bolt up
