No welding, it was a bolt in mount. I wish I would have just bought the weld in mounts so I had more control of engine placement. I was 3/4" shy of using the black magic fan set up for this radiator. Flex fan works great though. I went through the factory wire harness and removed all unused items and used a Painless wire harness for the engine. Plumbing for the fuel, cooling, and trans cooler were normal swap issues.

Yes, 700R4. Fuel injection is not that complicated at all, so much easier to work with in my opinion. I used to be a carb lover building and working on hot rods but after my first Mustang GT, I was hooked on fuel injection.

Are you gonna try and run your air intake to the old location of the factory box, or is the alt. going to be in the way? Looks like there is plenty of room on the pass side for a custom cold air intake....

Great job, it looks factory. my first swap will be a carburated 350 w/700r4. I will probably add a megasquirt after I get it sorted out.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Thanks everyone. I am using a K&N cone type filter, I will add more pics later. Not much room to run a cold air kit due to the tensioner on one side and the alternator on the other. The engine is out of an 88 corvette, I rebuilt the engine before I installed it. Thanks Max, I saw what I did after the first post.

Advanced Adapters bolt in crossmember, about $125.00 from Sumitt Racing. Very easy to install.
