Here's the LZ23 all reassembled and prepping for fitment into the B210
It's worth mentioning again that a 510 crossmember does not allow you to "swap an L series right in" ... sure, it sits in there, but it's about 5-6" too far forward.. radiator wont properly fit and im sure that the weight distribution would be fucked.
anyway, in doing this modification i lowered the engine 3/4" and also moved it back 3" ... so far, im happy with it. Oil pan may be an issue and engine may need to be lifted 1/4".
yes. those are hockey puck motor mounts. no, the plates i made are not properly installed yet. this was the initial fitment test before I complete any more work and waste time.
(fyi use Imgur for new pic hosting. fast and way easier than photo bucket)
Here is the "adapter plate" i made up. It's very simple and probably not the best way to do this. But... it's simple. This isn't a race car.
I used the PL510 cross member. i cut the center out and made a custom square tube center that allows me to go front sump. I used a front sump oil pan and pickup tube from an imported L18 with efi ... it's what was sitting around. A10 oil pan will also work for front sump.
I'm happy (so far) with firewall fitment.
stock 510 square port exhaust fits perfect
side draft clear the brake booster, too. Note, my manifold has a bend in it. if this manifold is not used, the side drafts may not fit.
still sitting very close to factory lean (some say 12 deg, some say 15 deg....)
