There are a number of underhood mods that have to be completed before the engine is installed. For instance, a steering-shaft relocator is installed to move the steering shaft over about an inch (shown) so the shaft clears the driver-side valve cover and exhaust manifold; the OEM battery box is modified to work with the new mount and still retain the factory look; the passenger-side firewall is modified to make room for the head; and the new transmission mount is welded to the factory crossmember.
