Puck, the London gig is actually an assignment versus a deployment so it's a 3 year deal. Could go a bit longer though because the end of my three years here will put me with less than a year to go to retire so I could end up staying here those last 8 months or whatever. Due to be done in London in April 16, retirement date of Feb 17.

Khris, I'm not suggesting we swap motors. I just need yours to measure and figure out what needs to happen to stuff an LQ9 in the Duece. You know, hypothetically.

So... You're saying Feb '17 I should probably line up an engine hoist? LOL

Funny part is it almost looks narrower then your 3.4 but I've gotta feeling it's cause the F150 is so wide! Put it this way, thoughts of a ice chest between the seats has already crossed my mind!!! LOL I'm talking like a full size ice chest!

Sorry, not relevant to your post lol, but it made me run out and check something. My LS2 is 5" shorter than the 4.0 (bellhousing surface to front of crank pulley), and with the new oil pan, the rear sump from mounting surface to lowest point is 5.5".......the stock 4.0 pan is almost 9.5". So basically I am excited to find that my fears are over of the pan getting in the way of my big front diff on full bump!!

No you wouldn't, you'd sell all of that to Jason for $500. You don't need a V8 powered blender.

Just throwing this out...I am looking for a complete(doesn't have to run,) 1971 Dodge Demon with a straight, clean body. Can be any engine or no engine, just needs to have no other major components missing, no rust holes, no body damage(bad paint ok, but steel must be straight.) Obviously, the cheaper the better. I would prefer it to not be anything special like a rally or 340 car, because it won't remain stock.
If anyone sees one or knows of one, please hit me up. All of us are usually out and about in different places, and can usually spot near stuff. Only other considerations would be a 71 Plymouth Duster, or a 69 or 70 Dodge coronet 2 door. I know they're scarce, but they're out there and for relatively decent prices.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

I might know where a 73 Dart is sitting if you would be interested in that? I can contact the owner and see if he still has it.
