    The shop is full of projects that arent mine :/

    To some this would be a blessing to me its just annoying because i cant get **** done on the burban. I go to my 9-5 aka 4pm-12am, hit the gym for 2-3 hours, followed by 4-10 hours at the shop. Im almost to the point where im gunna say F the home owners association and drop my damn engine into the burban in my drive way.

    Btw this will be my first engine swap ive so any tips, tricks, or advice before i start the swap will be greatly appreciated. Mire then likely i will be doing the swap all on my own and besides discounting and labelimg things i really have no idea what im doing. My builder is supposed to swing by after all the "work" is done and button uo the install / adjust timing / make sure its running correctly.

    I haven't checked d this thread in a while ... I just want to say ... WOW!! I think you are doing a spectacular job, even with the ups and downs and too many other things going on ...

    The day will come when you can stand back and see the finished project sitting in your drive ... sooner than you think, too ... good job!!
