The core surpport is done which i ended up using a 12v intercooler. The motor is built and ready to go in and so is the transmission. The motor and transmission should be going this weekend but u never know lol.

If you're not very handy with wiring, this is your best option. Otherwise you can build the harness yourself. They quoted me $1200 to take a factory harness and modify it to work. I don't know about most people, but the 2 days I spent modding the harness custom to my SUBURBAN was worth alot less than $1200.

Well i have a pretty good idea on the wiring. but my cousins has it figured out hes a gm master mechanic. Thats how i got all my parts cheap and my injectors lol . Well today i got alot of work done i got the oil pans on the motor and buttoned it up. Then i wired wheeled my frame and gave it a good coat of undercoating. I also got my motor mounts welded up today and my new 5in exhaust mocked up to. So tomorrow i hope i can test fit the engine and tranny and figure out how im going to build my cross member. I will have sum more pics up monday probly.

I did run into sum problems like my front driveshaft angle is crazy the tcase and allsion is alot different then my old tcase. The allison and 263 transfercase has hardly no drop to it, my old borg warner 4470 hung down pretty far so i dont know what im goin to about that front end right now.

Heres sum more pics of what i got done today. What do guys think i should do about the front driveline angle. I think im goin to shim the front axle upwards to help the angle sum. I also think im goin to use a slip yoke eliminator kit in the transfercase and then get a constant veliocity joint drive shaft. Do you guys have any suggestions.
