My build looks like its finally making some progress.... I'm hoping to have it ready sometime this month. I made the mistake of taking it to a small time shop we're the car sat idle for months. Fortuntely now its in very capable hands and nearing completion.

:wave: I'm doing one... Which will hopefully be brought to life in 2 weeks or so... barring any significant delays due to backorders :disgust:

But I've already got heads from you :biggrin: For everybody on the fence about this process, definitely get it done... they just look so sexy when completed :biggrin:

Just finishing up my 2.5L install :cry: depending on if it starts with the first try that may give me enough confidence to try a 3.0L next year. But after spending $2200 just to do this install right, I don't know if I want to see the bill of me doing a 3.0L.

I'm considering it, but I need to rebuild the XR7's engine (20 years running fine, only to be brought down by a stuck thermostat-induced HG blowing, which led to rod knock................ugh....) so I can have something to drive while the swap would be going on :p

I'm looking at doing a 3L swap possibly as soon as this winter. My current engine has 123k miles, so its due to be replaced soon.

Anyone in the PHX area with a hookup for a 3L, let me know!

Starting to check out parts for mine. Looking at an Oval-port 3L with port matched svt lim/uim, and svt cams. Probably start picking up smaller parts in the next month or so.
