    A little more progress.
    Got the engine dressed up and I'm very happy with the way it sits in between the frame.
    Moving it further back and notching the crossmember to allow a lower position worked great.
    Sitting below the cowl horizon, even with the cover on.

    I decided on the LSSimple bracket and got the V5 compressor as well.
    Turned out really nice and installation was easy.
    I got a new alternator bracket installed, one pictured had the side shaved for a previous install.
    I wanted the factory pulley position.

    Fuel system is installed as well.

    Looks awesome! With how you have it installed, what driveshaft will you pick to shorten and use?

    So on builds like these, it's always easier to have custom shafts made?

    really there isn't a choice.
    the stock shafts in these things are ridiculous!
