Just checking in... glad to see you are not using the Downey headers after all. Mine has the ORS crossover, and was the prototype for his production unit (mine was version 1, then version 2. Version 2 is a keeper). It is worth it, very labor intensive and well made.

But it looks like you have the equivalent.

The 3.4 fit in my engine bay with the drivetrain 3" forward, with the stock hood, 1" body mount, and 2mm of clearance. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> I elected to put in a scoop mostly for bling. Prior to the BL I ran a ventilated hood (hole <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />) ). The firewall clearance was TIGHT until the BL. Much easier to fiddle with things now.

CHANGE THAT OIL PAN. You want a T100 2WD pan. Move the dipstick.

I used a FRORF crossmember, clean and strong, but not compatible with the chain tcase of course. I am running an R151 but frankly I'd run the stock R150 now with a V6 plate to get the Marlin Crawlers adapted. The R151 is bulletproof, but doesn't shift as nice.

Lookin' GOOD.

[edit] oh, and POR15 Metal Prep is basically the same pickling mentioned, just more expensive. It works.
