Well had a few minutes here and there to get some work done on the car. The motor is where its going to be so now its mount time. Going to go with solid mounts which i know guys will be like "there is going to alot of vibration transferred" but ive ran a few different cars with solid mounts to Include my wifes chevelle and have had zero issues after 10 years.

So been working away at the swap. Got the header done as well as most of the tunnel structure. My intake flanges should be done this week so I can start building a new intake. The shifter on the colorado trans is actually in the perfect shot so I won't have to change anything on that at all.

So I've gotten quite a bit of progress done on the car. Got all the fuel system done as well as the battery relocated to the rear of the car. Also sent off and had the engine wiring harness cur down and ecm flashed. Next is the cooling system and exhaust then it should be ready to fire up.

Rebuilt all of the rear suspension and put in the 1 inch lowering blocks but may replace the rear springs with lowering springs.

Kyle I just love the look of the headers you built. It will be a shame to put a hood over those. Great swap!

Thanks

Cant take all the credit for the headers because all i did was cut apart the lower section. The header was actually for the car the motor came out of.
