Ok, The motor is in. The other Justin came over tonight, yes two Justin's, and we got some stuff done. We didn't have an engine hoist so we each picked up one end of the motor and tranny and set it in. The 16v Oil pump is on and so is the intermediate shaft. I just need a 16v crank pulley now. The oil pan is going to have to come down again. Justin turned the motor with a wrench and the crank was scrapping against the flaps on my windage tray, so I'm going to have to bend the flaps down a little more. The Black forest Industries motor mounts are super stiff. Basically solid. So getting all the motor mounts bolted was a bit tricky. I'm pretty happy now though.
