David, some grad student at Cal Tech is scratching his head right now trying to figure out what he saw on his seismometer!

That is exactly what I said to him. I just put in another request for a few quick pictures, so hopefully he'll send me some by the end of the day.

He did say the straight pipe sounded good and that I will love it.
He is going to visit his son for the weekend, who is a few hours away, so it will get a good test.
I am hoping everything is good with the set up, and all the features work, such as the jakes, cruise, fast idle etc...

So far, Mike made this engine swap look easy, but we'll find out how it works by the end of this weekend

cool man - I'm happy for you! Keep us posted on the drive test. On the fan, usually, those have a relay triggered by the ECU. I wonder if the relay is wired up incorrectly? obviously, you don't need me to troubleshoot, but hopefully it is a simple fix. I would suspect it is.

I think Mike had his wife send me a few pic's that were on his camera from the last week or 2 to keep me quiet, but it doesn't include pictures from the last few days where they had it ready to drive........

Anyway, here is the custom extended fan drive shaft installed

I think Mike did a great job on all the plumbing.
