    You've got the donor vehicle correct, but the part you think I'm using is not....

    I'm planning to use a 632BBC which isn't a V10, but it should still do OK in the power department.

    The Granite State is New Hampshire. I lived their for 19 years before I joined the Navy, moved around a bit and eventually ended up in Virginia working at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

    when you are done, please post a detailed write up? i'm sure you will, this is really cool.

    i recently realized that cubic inches can only do so much, performance is all in the gears.

    your scope of work involves custom input and output shafts, adapter plates at the motor and t-case, strengthening the housing near the t-case, custom drive shafts, and cross members, and possibly relocating your shifters. :hack::weld::yikes::weld::k5::usaflag:
    im jealous i wish i were in a position to try a similiar upgrade. good luck:waytogo:
