    If you're after a intank electric fuel pump i highly recommemd the Aeromotive phantom pump. Whether it be EFI or Carb. The installation was so easy.

    I know you think you believe you understood what I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what I said isn't always what I meant.

    $441 is fine for a pump setup that'll feed a turbo v8. The last thing you need is a lean mixture because the pump can't keep up. It'd be a lot more expensive then for sure.

    Horsepower does not come cheap.

    The 4L80E showed up on Friday so it was time for a test fit and set up new motor mounts and trans mount. It fits extremely well! Shouldn't have to alter the transmission tunnel so that worked out in favour!

    Now just to paint the firewall and final assembly can begin Name:  20181130_205037.jpeg

    We finally have the engine in place for the final time. Firewall has been repainted and a mass of 42 holes welded up.

    Had a unforseen problem when i came to pull the torque converter up to the fly wheel... PCD didnt match. So back off the flywheel came and a quick redrill on my Mill.

    Original 3 on the tree collumn shift converted to automatic with a Lokar shift linkage and some welding.

    ECU mounted with all wiring terminated with many hours of head scratching getting it to work with my Clifford Alarm/Immobiliser as they wont supply any technical drawings to joe blogs!

    Next step is to get the exhaust fabbed up and turbo mountedName:  20190105_153429.jpeg

    Couple hours free at work today so i made a start on some of the exhaust pipework for the turbo. Made from 304SS Tig welded and back purged.

    Even managed to get the turbo mounted and made a cut out for the intake side.

    Next to make is a cross over tube and wastegate take off Name:  20190122_142350.jpeg
