First course of action on the 2.0 build is to give her a diet, and to bring back some of that J-H styling I have been missing. over 350lbs is plate and tube steel and 1-2" thick bondo was removed. The fenders came from the donor car.

The crate motor coming out nice and smooth.



I was never really happy with the way the motor sat in the car so after I pulled the crate motor I went ahead and reworked the Motor mounts slightly to lower the engine down some.







The new motor sits down a pretty good bit compared to the first attempt.



It looks like with some work I can get the hood patched up and back to looking normal-ish.

Just for those that are curious.

The new motor is a 406ci Small block Chevy stroker. Should push close to 400-450hp respectfully.

The transmission is a TCI performance rebuild.

I have taken a couple drives down the drive way with the car and the brakes are not even close to adequate to stop the car any longer. The 4 piston caliper kit is on order to replace the stock calipers now.

Quick walk around with the new motor running:
