Well I got some news and possible some pics later today/night or tomorrow if my buddy comes through and sends me them. I ordered up the rest of the parts. Ceramic block hugging headers mallory 4309 fuel pressure regulator billet fuel pump block off plate air filter hei tune up kit water neck 700r4 stainless steel braided flexable dipstick kick down cable lokar shifter (floor mount with a 16 inch stick and its a cable shifter for more options and flexability when I mount it) and last but not least the radlock aluminum radiator supporting up to 500HP and heavy duty fan, integrated aluminum shroud and console (that should be at my houses doorstep tomorrow according to ups tracking). So Ill try to get pics of all that if my buddy will take some and send them to me.

Now the really really really bad news. I was trying to get in touch with the transmission shop thats supposed to build the 700r4 with the adapting kit. I couldnt get through to them. My buddy drove by and theres a big orange sign in the window that says property siezed by state taxes, and my 700r4 and adapting kit is in there. And i dont know what state the tranny is in if its torn apart finished or never touched it. So I'm working with the state tax department right now to prove that I own the trans and kit and hopefully I can get it out of there next week. If it hasnt been touched yet I already have someone that is going to build it for me and swears he will have it done in a week. If its done then Im still going to pay the owner but deffinetly not the full price after all the crap hes put me through. If its in pieces I dont know what I'm going to do. But well see Im hoping for the best but Ill keep you guys posted.

By the way its a radlock radiator integrated alumium fan shroud and heavy duty fan and console all ordered from novak. Supports up to 500hp. The trans will support the same amount after it finally gets done. Should give you a clue to a project after the swap is done

Got some new motivation after I got over the trans and adapting kit being siezed. Since I already ordered every part I need for the 350 swap and am just waiting on solving this issue I'm just going to keep on truckin with other projects.

Ordered up MCE flatty fenders generation 1's. Ill get picks of them when the come in and try to get my buddy to send me pics of the rest of the parts for the swap.

What transmission and t-case do you want to run? Ill give you a list for what I needed tell me what trans and t-case and I can help you out more

Im using a carburated motor 700r4 transmission and np231j transfercase...

Motor mounts and rear mounts
700r4 to np231j adapting kit
Rebuild/build the 700r4 and get the adapting kit installed at the same time.
Block hugging shorty headers
4903 mallory fuel pressure regulator
Custom exhaust personally single exhaust going right in place of stock exhaust with a thrush muffler and a test pipe in place of the cat
Radiator
Aluminum fan shroud electric fan, fan console.
lokar floor mount shifter for trans
novak t-case shifter
flexible dipstick for trans
tv cable for trans
possible driveshafts
8.8 rear end to hold the power and bigger tires
power steering lines, fuel line, vaccum lines, tranny lines, upper lower radiator hoses, heater hoses, wiring (small stuff).
black magic pads with slotted rotors in the front(more power to go needs more power to stop in my opinion)
steering column out of a stick shift jeep to get rid of the column shifter for stock auto trans
stick shift shifter boot for trans and tcase shifter
and I got all new gaskets put on the motor and a nice tune up kit to get it running good.

I've noticed that most of the transmissions shops around here paint theres one color to help identify if it was done by them.

The 2.5 is out for good. The engine bay is really dirty and grimey I might ask my buddy to clean it up a bit before I get home.
