LSx Turbo Ford Fairmont Build Video #12 (ENGINE is IN but...)
The motor and transmission are in! BUT...as always there is a problem. The oil pan (LS3 C6 Corvette pan) was too deep towards the front. I thought it would clear but...it didn't. Here is a video talking about it. http://www.iBuyhorsepower.com





LSx Turbo Ford Fairmont Build Video #7 (Wheels on the Ground)
I scored a set of 18" Cobra R rims with tires for 200 dollars. I went to put them on the car and had socket problems. I ordered a thin wall socket and moments later the car was on the ground.

The motor is back in with the new FBody Oil pan. The motor is buttoned up and bolted in. Here we do a quick overview and begin to mockup up the transmission crossmember. Should be a bolt in ordeal. Cross member and brackets are from 4 Cylinder Mustang 1987-1993 http://ibuyhorsepower.com/





LSx Turbo Ford Fairmont Build Video #14 (Motor and Tranny Full Mounted)
The motor and transmission are full mount and installed. The transmission crossmember was the last piece to the puzzle. We can now move only bigger and better things like the turbo KIT! http://www.iBuyhorsepower.com
