Why the different crossover? Was it for clearance to fit the OBA? I'm looking for a different crossover because I have the stepvan version with a thermostat housing that points up and will interfere...

Gotcha. Like any swapper I'm fixated on the final position of the engine. I am as low as I can get it without hitting the harmonic balancer. With the front clip off the frame I can't tell if the...

Have you put the sway bar in? I'm curious what the clearance is between the crank pulley and harmonic balancer is from the sway bar. Trying to position my 6.2 motor mounts and with the engine as low...

I'm digging those cast iron motor mount spacers. Clearing the steering shaft seems to be a common issue. Any idea how much that raised your overall height?

I want a set now and stole one of your...

I've heard of guys scoring fresh rebuilds on auction. Also read about fresh rebuilds with missing or used injector pumps. Seems that units will order a whole block if a part is out of stock. But...

We've never met, yet I'm fighting the urge to say very unflattering things about you.

Nice score. I see a good number of engines in crates come up on auction and sometimes it works out very, very...

Not sure what part you're hoping to keep instead of just replacing the whole shooting match, but I chatted with Juliano's as well. They seemed flexible and decent to work with.

I ended up finding...

Novak has made an adapter to allow you to put a 700r4 in front of the QT. It's similar to AA's kit, but you'll start with a 2WD 700 with it's longer output shaft. This allows them to use smaller spud...

Funny I'm seeing a 401 comment from you, DieselSJ, considering I'm on the cusp of a 6.2 diesel swap but you can have mine a few months!

About a month ago Eric said the first run of cones were done but not yet hardened. And the QT-700r4 kits were done. I'll reach out to him for a status.

Yeah $30k is their way of saying no thanks, they're not even trying. My swap costs are rapidly approaching $8500. This is mostly parts with some labor for tranny and head rebuild and a placeholder...

I've towed 16' and 19' Airstreams with my Waggy (w/ a tired 401). It did fine with stock tires and 3.07 gearing. Not great, and didn't scream up the mountains, but fine. The short wheelbase is...

The 700r4 was never as strong as a TH400 or 4L80, but they can be built to almost any level. They were used in Vettes and every full-size Truck/SUV/Van GM made for ~25 years (1500s at least). Any...

Which intake tophat is that? Is that off an ATS turbo setup or is that a stock GM 6.5TD plenum? I'm used to seeing the Banks plenum on 6.2s.

That's one of the worst cage designs I've ever seen. I'm sure it's made of pipe, those corners are useless without gussets (big ones), and what's the idea with that rear 'hoop'? It makes my brain...

This is what I picked up for mine, out of a 74 wag. I'd prefer it was metal, but it's made pretty thick and solid.
