30 inches inside to inside to make plenty of room for the exhaust and the links. Good or bad the frame will be straight, no more A shape to it in the middle.

Got a little progress made. Feels like one step forward 5 steps back by cutting the trans tunnel out and a lot of the floor and firewall. Dragged it down to battlement fabrications shop and threw it up on the fab table. Either the rig is tiny or the table is gigantic or maybe both.

Dude, its going to be crazy loud with the tb on the inside of the firewall. Just going by the way mine sounds now that it is running when you open her up. Your build looks sweet and awsome work to. i you have any questions on the wiring and stuff let me know. I got mine wired up and should have the tuner here to get the codes out of it next week. If you plan on street driving it i came up with a lockup setup that is cheap. The trans bulders want 100 bucks for the kit and you can build if for under 40 bucks. Keep up the good work.

Sick build. I wish I could just ditch the samurai frame. That is beefy. An idea for your throttle body / intake piping, on my build I am actually planning on piping the intake tube through the firewall on the passenger side, then straight up through the cowl. Pretty much in the same location as a humvee. Then I can put a taller snorkel on it for deep water.

I co-dawg'd KOH in a rig with this engine in it, and the intake inside the cab. It was unbearable with the helmets off. So my plan is to sheet over it and insulate the noise out. The combination of blower whine and vacuum whistle is like nails on a chalk board. I am definately interested in the home made lockup mechanism. Was planning on just buying the kit.

Sorry it toke so long to get back with you. The first set up did not work properly. The current setup works flawlessly. Use a 5 prong relay that gives power to the tcc all the time, when you hit the brakes it opens the circuit and unlocks as a safety feature, you have to make sure that your valve body has a factory pressure switch in the fourth circuit, I had to swap my valve body to do this. Run the ground thought the switch and you get lock up in fourth. Also make sure you get a heavy duty torq converter. A std rwd converter is a paper clutch material where the hd is a composite type.

Got a few new pics but missing a batch. Loaned my camera to the wife and she formatted my card.

I cut the whole floor out and will go back in with aluminum when the engine trans and t-caseare where they are supposed to be. Might as well do the firewall to but whats left is still there so I can reference where I want the engine.

Got the floor cage tie ins done. They are both tied into the rocker and the main frame. The rockers are also attached to the frame now. There will be a few more bars each and will be skinned as boat sides later.
