    It's not too bad plenty of room for headers its a bit taller than the block it had and the sump took a bit of cutting to get it low enough to close the bonnet.also had to cut the firewall back out as the heads go further back in proximity to the bellhousing flange compared to buick where the heads are 50mm foward forward of the bellhousing surface.

    I take photos a bit further out and then crop them down. This seems to cut off enough size for it to take them.

    I use one of my old phones.
    I can lower the mega pixels down to l think 6 or 8 mp, & that works for me.
    Two mp & above wouldn't load to the JC web site, but under that would.

    I email them to myself and select large. Bit of mucking around and annoying at times because its only every 5th or 6th photo that won't load.
