    For the life of me I can't understand why someone would go to all this expense and not treat the undercarriage rust while the VX is already torn down.

    agreed - this looks very expensive - the type of thing someone would do if they were COMPLETELY restoring a vehicle - nonetheless i cannot wait to see it done

    AutoPros,
    Could you please share pics of the engine and transmission mounts?
    I've seen different ways to mount them in VXs... curious how you did it.
    Thanks!

    ...this is the mock up/fit and fiddle stage.

    And once all is sorted the rust etc will be taken care of.

    What I really like...is the alternator up in the nose bleed section!!

    Yeah, what the flipping heck was Isuzu thinking. "Lets make the coolest, most bad butt truck eva, but lets make the alternator swim". Arrrrrr freaked Isuzu, other then the bad oil chugger, that one is even more of a nut buster.
    Great build BTW,

    Finishing up the cooling system now, and putting in the transfer case and adapter as we speak. Just been real busy in the shop which slows down progress on project vehicles. Photos coming soon.

    Whoa... tight fit. Looks like everything is coming together nicely. I'm guessing the electric fans will be on the outside of the engine bay?

    Correct, planning two-speed fans pushing air instead of pulling.

    Actually, considering they're going from a 75 to a 90 degree V, and four holes per side - it's not as tight a fit as I was expecting. Nice work! Seems like the devil will be in the electrical details though. Getting the guages to work, etc. Or maybe all that stuff was "harmonized" in 1999... I guess the A/C is easier to integrate on a '99.

    Does Maryland DMV have an I&M program? If so how much red tape is involved in an engine swap? Is this the first fuel injected V8 swap? Need a personalized plate that says FIV8VX#1.

    Very interesting thread.

    Been about two weeks now since the last update, you guys getting pretty close or what? How bout those engine mounts someone asked about?
