The engine preparation

This is the engine that will power the beast – now unwrapped. It looks like I have to unbolt the ancillaries and rewrap the wiring loom. I’ve spoken to Andy and he’s suggested calling a few people who might have done this before on similar engines.



My engine and gearbox come from a Cadillac CTS-V. Problem is that everything (from engine mount through to gearshift) is different to that on an F car (the ideal donor). I’ve spoken to Andy and he’s confident that we can make this fit — Time will tell. Worst case is that I need a new bell housing, some ancillaries and gearbox.
