Another engine change in this machine, from 4TGTE to a 3TC-Turbo :mrgreen:
Due to a unsuspected customer, that really really want the 4T, i was obligated to let someone else deal with the 4T and i decide to install a totally built 3TC instead, still going to have the power but not the wow factor, hell, i can live with that!

The 3TC is still a solid choice. Is it going to be EFI'ed?

Engine swap started RA64 to TA64, i cut the RA brackets from the X-member and clean em up and install the RA motor mounts to the 3T engine Brackets, and then bolt the cuted X-member brackets to the motor mounts, install the W58 trany/3t bellhousing combo on the factory trany mount,this is the easiest Swap i have ever done, just need to weld the 1/8' 4"x5" plate to the X-member and then the brackets to the plate, CHECK IT OUT !

I hope when all is installed it will be easy to work on it, remember this will have A/C and all the amenities.
