It might be a bit too heavy for driving in heavy stop and go city traffic, but its not bad at all. The design of the 7/8 MC is slightly different than the 3/4, the reservoir space sits slightly higher, hitting my recess- it works but not ideal, will be revising the design of the MC recess for future versions.

Also- I can now get reverse while the car is running, however it takes a good bit of effort and the car moves a touch when it does, I think the slave cylinder or clutch may be a bit worn.

Had my wife drive the car for the first time with the new engine, she was smiling and laughing on the back roads launching hard and sliding the rear around corners.

I used second mount holes. Attempted third but didnít want to hammer the trans tunnel much. Second hole only needed minor hammering around a few points. Itís a GTO shifter, I might replace it with sikky gto replacement shifter.

I had already removed it and made my own bracket. With some bending it might clear from the second hole, but its tight.

I'll be working on it some more this weekend, after finding the 7/8 MC is taller than the 3/4 I need to move the MC position down within the recess.

The engine bay was hot when cruising around. Fixed that.

So I'll be dropping the exhaust tomorrow and cutting that out.

Only other remaining to-do's:
Vacuum Lines
Install lightweight battery (waiting on it to arrive)
Did you end up cutting that part out or will a hammer help give the driveshaft some clearance?

I cut two straight lines front to back on it, and used a harbor freight spot weld cutter bit on the middle, leaving the very sides in tact, but removing most of it.


You can kind of see the line here. Looking at the top of the trans tunnel around the shifter should also give you an idea to what height the trans should be (roughly) for proper driveline angles.

What did you do for the wire melting on header? And did the electric fans fix the overheat?
What oil pan are you using?
