Don't be fooled by the laptop Sam, it's just there so he can watch NCIS while he's working away :P

Didn't think it would serve a useful function in that context. :P
Still like that "office" though, looks more fun than mine. 8-)

Silly me left home without getting your number :roll:
Picked up the head from Troy's at about 10 and then went for a cruise over to pick'n'payless to see if I could pick up a radiator.....no Joy but, they don't have any 5.0 E series in the yard :x So I went home instesd and spent the afternoon test driving for a new work car instead.

Dave, that would have to be the simplest and easiest V8 conversion I've ever seen. 5L dropped straight onto the 6cyl K frame with the NL mounts I gave you, ECU is irrelevant with the dizzy and straight gas you're running and everything else (including the T5 when you get one) is a factory part or aftermarket bolt-on. You don't get much more straightforward than that.

Now I see why you're keen on those body mods and the AU IRS, you needed a challenge :P

Nice work Dave.

But, Ahhh, couldn't you have cleaned all the leaves and crap out of it first? Or is it undercover, as per it's heritage.
