IM book says you “might” have to bend your sway bar. Im guessing most if not all dont get away with not having to mess with it. Cause I need like at least an inch on both sides. Do people just force the end links on? It seems impossible with strut and how close the bar is to it. ...this is my solution though to try and get clearance. Best way I could think without loosing some teeth! These things ate literally made to bend and reform to original position :smackforehead:

Fbody oil pan etc swapped on, flywheel clutch swapped on, t56 trans installed, steering rack and inner outer tie rods done, finishing sway bar with end links. Waiting for motor mount bolts (come in tomorrow) should be able to do a test fit and massage this weekend.

Join the ratchet strap club! They work for everything!

That harness looks like a nice piece with the firewall adapter, Let us know your thoughts on how complete the integration is with it.

Ha thanks! Well after sweatin my ass off in this KS heat I shed an inch off it (Sorry I should of took pics of the measurement before and after) it did work though! *euryka*

I was going for 2” but I did a mock up and it fit with a little tension <—-outwards—> on the endlinks so thought I didnt wanna go to much farther inwards. It measured 43” across and I stopped at 42”

I will. Ill also post better pics of the quality of the work on each connector as well. Obviously if it doesnt work right, well that kind of goes out the window (at least for me) but will see.

You can never have to many AN fittings! (Need a straight -6AN/pushloc) for the feed. Mocked up though; running previous walbro 450 gas/e85 pump with SOS 450 oem pump hanger adapter.

Holy cow! I have no idea how many hours I have in this but its-a-bit. I have been having a shitty time getting the proper components for spacing on the accessories. Its been a real hassle, been to napa x2 now trying to get the proper tensioner. If anyone ever says oh “ls swap because of compatibility” slap them!!
it will be awesome but that should not be the reason.
