With everything removed that we didn’t need, we were ready to start the real work. Unfortunately, our Mopar Performance engine had not arrived. This meant we had to scramble and find a mock-up motor. Luckily, Dave Smith from Pro Trans happened to have a 440 block and even a spare 727 transmission laying around that he was kind enough to let us borrow. Now, ORU had all the dimensions needed to start making motor mounts, crossmembers, and the like.
