Will it fit?

Today I dropped the engine/transmission combo into the truck for the first time to see if it would fit. I was surprised at how well it actually does fit. I was able to position the engine lower and further back than the factory engine position. This will allow for better weight distribution, which in turn will help handling performance. Though, I can clearly see right now that header clearance, or even finding headers will be a big issue as the control arm location makes using most off the shelf headers out of the question.

Just picked up my next project

I just picked up my latest and what will be my most extensive project. It’s a 2000 Dodge Dakota, 2 wheel drive sport, with the 3.9 V6 engine mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. The truck only has 68,000 miles on it and it very clean. It will make an excellent foundation for which to build off of. Stay tuned for more. Read more
