Just so you know, I read your updates like every day, even though there aren't many pictures it is quick and easy to read through everything since you post a little update like everyday.

I am looking forward to seeing this completed! I also have some MS questions I might PM you about.

Well i got the new fuel pump relay hooked up with 30 amp circuit breaker so the problem of eating stock relay is over . I see Dakota Digital makes a GPS speedometer interface and it has both sine wave and square wave output signal so when i can afford one i will buy one and solve that problem.

Well i consider this engine swap a complete success sure it is not the fastest 1/4 mile car but it runs good and pulls hard up through the rpm's sounds great and the engine looks like it belongs there . i say to any one who wants to do this swap they should and if you want more power you can go with a turbo or a S8 40 valve engine .
