Updates! Motor is plumbed(mostly), BJ's aluminum tank is in( made to fit and still needed massaging to get in), drivetrain in and new driveshafts, lokar sport shift in. Now it's time to wire everything and get it talking. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Future reference for those that need it- this is the easiest connect to tap into the CAN bus, located on the top front of the motor near the top water line. God knows why they are using a three pin for a two wire connection, but there you go. This is where the Compushift trans controller is going to wire in to get throttle position, engine speed, etc info. ImageImage

And last but not least, here is the new gauge cluster coming from Dakota Digital this week. This was modeled off of the other gentleman's design referenced earlier for a 85 or earlier to work on the >1986 models. ImageImageImage
