Since the Z32 transmission places the mount about 4" back, I can't use the stock X-member.

Image

Ordered a custom one that I will modify to bolt on like the stock one.

Whoa, you did WORK on that trans! Great job. The new cross member looks nice; Same clearance as the stock cross member I'm assuming?

Based on my measurements the Z32 trans will place the mount 4" further back, which is why I chose that specific X-member. I won't know for sure till I get it in there.

Past few weeks I've been working a spare harness I had laying around, but most of the connectors were corroded pretty bad. So I decided to pull out the one in the truck and do a wire tuck and clean up all the wiring inside the cab.

Image

Image

I found the corrosion in my current harness. This is the wires for the injectors.

Everything looks really nice man. I've been looking pretty vigorously through your thread, and Zach's thread. PM me if you don't mind. I'm sure I have a few stupid questions you could help me out with.
