Hey I got the motor now how the hell do get the throttle to work I was told it's a fire wire set up?
I got the throttle and brake pedal set up and the plug that goes into it but does it go through the ECU? or can I use somthing different?

Yep it's drive by wire. You'll need the harness and PCM for it to work. The pedal pot. tells the PCM what angle to open the throttle blade.

Ok cool I got all that wheeew! thought I had to get something else but I'm not sure how this is going to mount to floor pedal area it's quite a large pedal box attached??? the bell housing from dellows will bolt up with out to much trouble by the looks of it too... just a few mods to the Block with the gas axe should see that done.....!!

You've got the wrong bellhousing there. No way in hell would I chop a bit off the engine block!

well you see they don't make an adapter for this moter yet! and from what I can see that small bracket on the block doesn't have any real use as far as strength goes and it would be the most simple way or it doesn't get done?? but I'm sure I wouldn't be the first person to modify a block or heads or bell houseing???

As a matter of fact that part of the block does have quite an effect on strength and NVH. I would modify the bellhousing(being ally makes it easy) to suit the block. Besides the likes of Dellow would be able to make you a complete new bellhousing to suit this application. They did a special bell for my mates' Capri 5.0.
Search my 6.8 V10 thread and you'll see that area is where the U.S. mod powered vehicles fit their starter. If you find a sandwich plate from one of these yankee cars you can use that as the template for modifying your bellhousing.
