Makes swapping an EB20 in the XR look easy. Awesome work! Too bad the earlier pics don't load for me.

Me either. I think I recall reading that he had an issue at some point with his earlier pics.

There were some false starts on how he was going to approach things. There's been a trend towards using less of the '66 and more of the 2011. It's almost gotten to the point where it's a 2011 with some 1966 clothes on it. Regardless, a very cool project.

The Ecoboost V6s will be easier. The problem with the 4cyl EB engines is the high pressure pump at the back of the head. Requires modding the firewall/removing A/C evaporator, so no A/C.
