    That looks like a decent install.

    Did you get the K-member with the extra bracing, I can't tell from the pictures?

    I have all those parts installed except for the K-member can you comment on the install, did you have to use a list for the engine, did everything line up right, what was the rate if difficulty in your opinion, etc?

    -Yes, I ordered the k-member with extra bracing

    -Install time was about 8 hours over 3 days. You know 3 hours here, 2 hours there. I didnt rush throught it.

    -I used a car lift from work and supported the eninge with a transmission stand and one exhaust stand.

    -There was only two parts that hung me up. The lower a-arm on the passenger side didn't matched up just right, even with the adjustments. And the steering rack was a bit tricky with all the hard lines. But this was my first attempt.

    -On a side note: even with the stock cross member out, changing the sparks plugs was still a bitch. haha
