So all you guys are right, and perhaps WHOZMAD is also, since if he had one of the early engines.. separated from the car it would not be necessary to identify what model car it came from... just the cast date ...

    Robert, is your engine and transmission assembled for good?

    I just noticed a problem I saw with a buddy's car, the engine oil pan drain plug can't be removed with the bellhousing in place. You'll want to fix that some way.

    Yea I picked up on that. No nothing is in permanently being that engine in these pictures is made out of plastic. So yea, I will be notching the scatter shield.

    I am building the exhaust right now and it is going to be very cool. 3" 304 polished Stainless all the way to the bumper with the Flowmaster super 50's. I built my own x pipe and will start hanging the system tomorrow.

    Best solution would be to relocate the drain plug for sure, and refinish pan as needed. I hate horizontal drain plugs so many engines use. You have to guess where it is going to go when you pull the plug.
