Here's the car. I get a lot of odd looks with the color.

The bellhousing came from a 1990 Jeep Comanche. The W58 from a Toyota Celica Supra.

The flywheel is a stock Camaro flywheel re-drilled for a Toyota Supra 3.0 NA clutch.

Here's the engine assembled. When I fitted it in my test mule the stick comes out almost exactly the same as the stock location.

I am going to use a MKIV dash instead of the Abbington pillow for the extra gauges. The gauges as all Speedhut except the ammeter which is Clasic Instruments. The speedometer is GPS so I don't have to figure out how to interface with the transmission.
