Separate the transmission from the bell housing, then lift the engine straight out without having to remove the radiator support. Should be able to leave the manifolds on too.

Nice engine mounts. 1/8"? I made mine out of 3/16", but yours look fine with all that bracing. And 1/8" is so much easier to work with.

This is sound logic. Being in the middle of a 16v swap, I can honestly say I wish I'd gone whiteblock. Purely for the sound and the coolness factor.

I had a 12x48" sheet of 5052 in my cart on onlinemetals.com, but then I read that it doesn't weld the same as 6xxx series. Something about it being even more prone to hot shortness and cracking?
