    Talking What did Lycan do?

    Well, I got the 350 finally in the engine bay, sitting all nice and shiny :bigthumb:
    I'm tired and my back hurts. But it was worth it.
    The transmission mount stilll needs to be put in and the wiring harness needs to be finished, but luckily my uncle got the wiring diagrams for me :bigthumb: Mr winter is coming and he doesn't like me with my non-heated garage.
    I'm really liking the driver's side exhaust manifold clearance on the 2nd gen better than the first.
    Tell me what you guys think.

    Thanks for the compliments. Seems the exhaust manifold on the driver's side hits the control arms, so i went on got a manifold from a full size that has the oxygen sensor already on it. 35 Bucks! What did you guys do for the shift linkage? Mine seems too short.

    OK. Got the driver's side full size manifold on and I'm more happy with the fitment of that than the other manifold i had.
    I had to cut some off of the a-arm bolt, and some off the corner of the manifold, but after that it fit in good. But the problem is that the engine has to be back 1/2" more than where the transmission mount lines up, so i'll have to drill a new hole for the mount, but will I have to cut the driveshaft? I hope not.

    Here is the driveshaft at the rearend with the yoke pushed all the way into the transmission. Will I have to have it cut? I'm hoping not.
    The yolk on the rear is just tilted to one side, so it makes it look like it won't fit in there at all, but it will.

    unles you wanna replace the tranny every week or so.. then yea you have to cut it down.. you need 3/4" of space between the yoke and the tranny at RIDE HEIGHT

    thats how mine looked when i first tried it... i had to get 1 1/2" cut outta mine to fit correctly... only cost $100... dont think the 1/2" axle movement will give you enough room without the yoke bottoming out inside the tranny...

    I think it will, I just moved everything ahead, so the transmission is only 1/4" behind the mounting location, so moving the axle back 1/2" should fix the problem. After the rear portion of the driveshaft yoke is connected to the rear end, it should have more play in it.
