Near the Fort Walton Beach & Destin area. Panhandle.

Cool. We took a drive up there a couple years ago woth boat in tow. To see an amazing area think it’s crab island. Well looked amazing in the videos. When we got there we found the worst damn fog ever. Almost the entire week we were there 🤦🏼‍♂️. It was beautiful in the clearer areas

Walmart.com is the cheapest I’ve found it - shows up in two days. And hold on for the volume. I have TruCool 40k cooler, with system empty it takes 4.2-4.4 gallons.

Jake has a video about marking your dipstick as well - search his vids on YT.

And FWIW, I’ve never put the engine and trans in preassembled. Too much of a PITA, and I have practice - between my sons car and mine I’ve pulled the motors more times than I have fingers. And if I’m motivated I can have the motor out in 3 hours. But normally 5hrs and a the better part of a 6 pack haha.
Close to 7/8 but this is without FP bolts torqued on at all. Have a bolt hole that I need to chase

I see your flexplate has multiple mounting holes- do yourself a favor and mark the holes you’re going to use on the engine side.

And, ummm, ahhh, holy bejesus - Mast heads on a street car??? That thing is going to make 1000whp at 15psi.

I LOVE IT!!!!!!
