might have to look into that although it would want to be pretty long. There's enough room to swing FatCat between the gearbox and the tranny tunnel now, almost to the point where I don't actually need a tranny tunnel!

Small update,

Still haven't done a lot of what I said I'd be doing last weekend, I keep getting sidelined with other things, there just isn't enough time!

Yesterday I was able to spend a couple of hours on it, I fitted the engine and gearbox temporarily to check clearances.

- The 3" turbo exhaust dump fit *just* clears the steering linkage. It's close but then again, it was back with the 3" lift kit too. Should work fine.
- The gearbox clears the sub frame adapters
- The front of the motor still clears the radiator but this isn't as important as it used to be. The thermo fans will now pretty much be completely above the engine and it's pulleys.
- Interestingly the position of the motor might actually allow me to revert back to the good old "spare wheel under the bonnet" scenario - it's low!



Sorry for the crappy pic, it's all I could get in the low light before my phone's battery died.

probably only temporary. She needs a fair few oil seals changed, probably a timing belt etc. Ill need to pull her back out again to weld up the frames anyways.

good stuff. pity the engine stills sits at the same height with body lifts. its still in a position to get hit- even more so that the body isnt there to protect it
