Thanks!

Got the motor and trans separated this weekend, pulled the front case apart and installed a bse kit. While I had the pan off I also checked the crankshaft end play very close, it came out to .07 mm. That gives me some more confidence in the engines reliability. Went ahead and redid every seal on the bottom end too. I also got the valve seals and springs swapped out, still need to install the cams, 3mm lifters and timing components.

I want to swap out the front clutches on the trans but I'm hesitant to open it up and unsure how to do it? I've done the rear clutches before and I have a kiggly 5 clutch pack handy but don't know if I need any other seals or what not? I would've loved to swap out to a beefier flexplate but it seems nobody offers one like the weird RVR flexplate.

Hopefully I can get the rest of the engine together within the week and start on the trans.

Nice, moving right along.

From images I have seen it looks like the front clutch basket is the next thing in line after the trans pump. So I think pulling the pump is all you would have to do?
I know pump alignment on reassembly is critical.

I bought a 6bolt kiggly flexplate for my rvr trans.
I never looked into.....its all sitting for a future swap, but I'll go out and look how it all mates up and let you know. Hopefully it works or I will have a kiggly plate up for sale lol.

Parts keep coming, I'd like to list them all but I'll just touch on some of the main stuff being added here and there. Thought this was a a good deal for 109 shipped, also got a Derale inline fan switch adapter and switch coming to run it.

Hard to keep up with this thread lately (blame facebook) but I have got the engine in and a few other things done as well. I'll post some pics up in a day or so.

I haven't updated this in awhile but I've gotten it running fantastic. There are no bugs and the 3g shifter install went smooth, I also managed to update Thom's shifter write up to work with the newer Forced Four SMART series shift boxes. It is actually simpler to wire up this way now, does anyone have a way to host the file on here?

Contact Natas and see what he says. A bunch of people use Google Drive and such, but I'm sure it would be no issue to use our internal system via post attachments. See what Nate says.

I am using a RVR Turbo tcu and SMART 100 shift box in conjunction. The write up explains the process of switching between the two with the shifter.

The van has 2G ECMlink v3, speed density set up, FIC hi z 1000's, Walbro 450, aeromotive FPR, Kinetic Race FMIC, FP race manifold, Ebay tdo5h 20g, electronic boost control, BC 272's, BC valve springs, standard ARP's. It is on 20'ish psi and runs great on 93 pump, need to get it on e85 and turn the modest timing up. I've run 7.7 at 89 mph in the 1/8th mile so far and that was on a E316g. 8)
