got a little bit more done.
First, thank you - "Jimmy" Yes people will always complain. The concourse guys will complain if its not stock and that you drive it. The purists will complain that you didn't use only motorsport parts. I do wish some of the hot rod world would try to recall how hotroding as we know it got started with swapping in whatever was available and within their means to go faster. I do understand that for the potentially thousands of dollars to do the lsx swap one could build a sick ford motor (be it sbf,Windsor,bbf,mod,etc.) But more like traditional hotroding (using what is available to me) or the rat rod culture (dare to be different) (p.s. I know this swap has been done dozens of times and isn't different anymore but is less mainstream.) There are plenty of threads on here for debating the strong/weak points of the different motors. Not this thread. I'm trying to show how to do these things. And if anyone asks I will try and show how to do what I have done. I have a lot of hours in researching some of these things only to find vague answers or lack of detailed information. Please ask how I did some thing if you would like further detail or clarification.
Secondly, I trimmed the hell out of the dash to make the camaro cluster fit under the stock gauge hood. As it turns out when I installed my extremely modified plastic dash over the metal brace the metal was all in the way. But to any one looking to make the cluster fit in a 87-93 fox, basically all you have to do is trim off the dimmer switch mounts and the cluster will fit inside under an unmodified gauge hood. Note I could not find a way to make it look decent whilst retaining the factory dimmer switch location. I also re-did some grounds and hots in the trunk.
