I got the motor in today, but ran into a problem with the lift kit. The valve cover on the driver's side was sitting on top of the front lift block. So I had to modify it a bit to make it work, but I got it.

Here's the motor feeling right at home.

I drove the brat today for the first time since I finished the frankenmotor swap. Wow! What an improvement over the stock setup. He he he

I bet it's a blast! How noisy are the cams and where is the lash set if solid?

Well the brat is as finished as I can get it at this point. I'll have to button up the rest of the issues after the show.

Did you get a different (longer) set of ARP studs and if so what is the part number? Thanks!

 

Nope, I just used stock EJ22 head bolts.
