    Something I have just been working on is the Shifter as it needs adapted for the OD Trans thats now in the car. So I went with the Shiftworks kit. I *may* have to change out the selector on the trans but I need to inspect it first.

    I also did get the LS6 intake on, it came with the rail on it. I tested the injectors. 2 were bad, so I replaced them, and got a rebuild kit for the other 6. Had to bend the inlet part a bit to clear coil pack. Just have to run a line from the firewall area to it and my fuel system will be sealed up.

    The ShiftWorks Kits work pretty well - Like the color add to the gear indicator.

    Finished up the Power Steering system today. Like I previously stated I used a mid 9-s Grand Cherokee box, and I added an 03 Silverado HP line, and return line from Cherokee

    I ordered a Griffin Radiator (PN#8-70010-LS) and Derale Fan package (PN#16826 ) and I went about installing what I could today. I was able to use the replacement Radiator bushings with a little clearance along bottom of the rad support to avoid metal/metal contact and some clearance along the edge of the top plate to it could clamp the radiator down properly.

    The steering gear box is in the area where the fan shroud would be so I made a careful measure and cut of this area (below)

    Yes I know, I noticed that when i pulled it out of the box, I'll probably remove it and stick in on the toolbox anyways.

    I had to bottom mount the fan shroud so I came up with some brackets and installed them. Also some hoses. They fit great!
