    Had to reconfigure the oil cooler and trans coolers, so checked before I did anything, but had the room just behind the front bumper to mount the oil cooler, so got that all done today, next week will get the trans cooler mounted probably next to the fuel cell under the car.

      Also got the new insert installed with red lock tight, letting it sit over night till I torque it down. Hopefully this is it with those heads lol

      Well took the day off to get a few things done, still waiting for one of them to see if it can be done today. But did work on the engine, tapped the insert a bit to just make sure it's free from burs, and finally all rockers are torqued down no more breakage from them crossing fingers that was the last. Got them gapped .022 int and .018 exh cold, cam card says .020 int hot and .022 exh hot. Got the intake mounted bummer have to open or angle the opening on the super victor for just two inner hole one per side to fit due to the runners so large. But silicones that on and put the VC on as well but need to shave a little more for clearance. But a step closer.

          Thanks just glad those new inserts worked and torqued down, such a big relief. This weekend I'll clearance the valve covers more and get that all done.

          Finally got the other race harness, big thanks and shout to carvamcom on Ebay, this guy Wes is awesome takes great care of you, been waiting for this harness to come off back order from the company not his, great guy to deal with. Also got in the new proportioning valve from wilwood, and more fittings for the oil cooler and a carb lift plate going to install the engine and trans separately, have a leveler but I put the intake on oops over excited lol, the new turbo headers should be also done here soon too.

                Cant wait you will be happy with that alternator i have a 270 amp on my challenger charges at 180 amps at idle also they charge at 15 volts which is good for the electronics & lighting i use a oddesy extreme battery expensive but are not bothered by the higher voltage also have around 13 volts at rest so you get a bit more oomph when starting

                Got a few little things done today, finally figured out where to mount the remote oil filter, it will be on the outer passenger side front bumper bracket sideways, had to order longer bolts to space it out a bit, got the fitting to the top of the oil cooler on and the hose to the remote oil filter made and on, front bumper back on. The gauge port on the Earl's wouldn't thread the sensor for the speed but gauge so I drilled and tapped one of the plugs for it, on the in side of the flow so temp will be right off the block. Going to order the LAT trans fluid here soon so I can fill the converter and install that, then in the trans goes then the engine. I bought a carb lift plate to drop the engine in, not sure I trust it to handle the engine and trans. But hopefully maybe next weekend I'll get it in the cars engine and trans then finish a few wires and plumb the rest of the car. Ordered a new trans cooler will be mounted in the back by the fuel cell, will weld in some brackets for it and bolt it in solid. Also got the drivers 5 pt harness in minus the sub will drill that hole out here soon for both sides.

                  Got a few little things done today, trans cooler mounted, ordered up the fittings. Got some arp bolts to help bolt the mid plate to the trans, had to cut down three of them. Also drilled the hole for the sub seat belt harness on the drivers side, has a big washer on top and bottom and bolted between the front bolts of the seat mount.
