Under the direction and help of Adam Garcia and Bostig's documentation, we finally removed my old waterboxer engine and transmission. Here is some video of the van engine bay, the old + new engines, and the transmission. I know. I have a lot to do still. But, I'm learning.

Finally started up this engine. On my initial starts, I had some issues that I had to resolve. My starter was on the fritz, so I got a new one from Van Cafe. The zetec engine had stuck fuel injectors and I neglected to connect the wire harness to the IAC valve. Once all that was updated, it started up wonderfully. You're right, Hemi. I forgot to wave to the camera.
