Meanwhile...the 900 went its engine/trans swap and got all hooked up back home. Still on the to-do list, move kill switch to new location per regulation and finish the V3 redesign of the BBQ box that’s going against the engine manifold. The box has been redesigned to be connected to the body and exhaust manifold, so to get around the torquing of the engine breaking it, several areas include flex joints so that vital BTU's don't get let out. To go with this, a vented ducts blowing on the bottom of the trans will in theory help keep the gearbox cool, while the addition of an oil cooler hopefully will maintain lower temps in the engine/trans assembly itself. *hopefully*...I mean, couldn't hurt right?
Step one: Push the engine/transmission out of Soggy's jeep.
Step two: Pull
Step 3: Install (the trick is making it look easy by describing the process with one word, we're hardcore like that)
Step 4: Paint the spare/street set of wheels a pleasing "someone just got murdered in here by a garden implement" red
Step 5: Tint headlights LeMans GT/GTS class yellow, add some dive planes, and begin the BIG PIMPIN on public roads. Coming to a northern Illinois/southern Wisconsin car show near you.
Don't worry, you can't miss it. If you do, it's because you're deaf.
