It's based on the EMP cover, which I really like the style of.

Oeuverlaunding approved! Engine cover looks like you could pop it off and place over a campfire to cook steaks.

Hey, I've cooked a fair share of stuff on my engine, usually unintentionally, though.

The hoops ended up around 90° as well.

Readjusted angles.

Anyways, I'm much happier with those angles overall. The panhard and steering is up next, once I get the hellfire knuckles.

I'm hoping to fully dive into wiring while waiting for those knuckles.

Hello Sir, could you get me a measurement from the top of the frame to the top center of your coil over hoop on your front suspension ?

Done! It all bolts together, just need to figure out location and mount it once the engine is in.

My condenser will bolt up to the tabs on the upper and lower covers.

I still haven't gotten my harness back yet, but the atlas should be here next week (according to my original ship estimate). I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I see your intercooler is Mishimoto. Is that who your radiator is from as well? And is it a stock fj40 size?

My radiator is a Frostbite, oversized quite a bit from stock 40 size.

It fits like it was meant to be.

20220708_182704.jpg


Full access to run the exhaust, which is a massive win, cause I wasn't sure if that was going to be possible.

20220708_182725.jpg


I'll build the power steering pump brackets tomorrow.

20220708_210008.jpg


Remote reservoir is just about perfect, I'll get that mounted as well.

I goofed on the rad mount a bit and ended up a bit wide, so that will get a trimming to fit.

I'm also getting bullied too 😂. Apparently I'm susposed to put those on now.

That engine looks like it fits absolutely perfect.

It really does. 100% stock engine side motor mounts, and it fits right into a 40 frame. Great depth and length for the trans, it puts it right in the middle of the tunnel. My front driveshaft my actually be shorter than my rear. Probably a first on a 40 :rofl:. It would be absolutely sick of I could pull of the same length front and rear and only carry a single spare for either side, but it probably won't happen.

I'm absolutely stoked with how this swap is going.
