knocked that out a couple years ago, thankfully... gonna verify with PCM of NC which o ring to run with the melling HV/HP pump/spring combo, I'm willing to bet its red but we'll see.
on another note- I'm this close to just getting the bottom end built out to 402/3,shockingly its difficult to get lead times or even returned calls and emails from various shops, I assume others are having problems sourcing parts like everyone
I had my engine built by a guy in Vegas over the summer. The only long lead time part he had was pistons. He does a bunch of LS basted engines, so he tends to just keep stuff in stock.

I'm just posting this for anyone who's curious etc, but this is the fan shroud I bought a couple years ago, 13" SPALs are on it, rated for around 1700cfm, probably more like 1300 per in the vehicle, guessing. Which is about 1/4 the original mech fan's flow from what ive read on the forum, so that's interesting, but I think as long as you do the big rad or that crossflow rad, low t-stat, get the fans on early things shouldn't get too hot (this has all been done before/proven obv, I'm just talkin out loud). Its honestly shocking how small/thin the OE rad is, I see why GM put the mother of all mech fans on there.! Also only around 20 amps per fan, probably 25 with the heat.? Maybe the paint will resemble the headers, which should be back anywhere from 17-27 Jan View attachment 103470
As much cash as you're putting into this, why not upgrade the fans from the get go?

After cruising spal's site, they don't make any high CFM 13" fans. Maybe you could make adapter rings to go down to 12" and use these.

You know we're gonna need pics, right? What CR did you end up going with? Think mine ended up being 10.5:1.

I have a stand that I built specifically to run Honda J series engines on. Uses a VW bell housing and adapter plate. It's low to the ground though. Not sure I'd want to do it on a regular engine stand.

I have the 1 7/8" Speed headers. No complaints from the guy who installed them or the guy that swapped in the 402 later.

I have the catless Y pipe if that make a difference for you.

Mine is at the body shop getting a few blemishes touched up, otherwise I snap some picks of the clearance for ya.

Not real up set about NOT having to drive my 10mpg ride with premium approaching $7g. Not that my Jeep gets a whole lot better, but at least it drinks 87,,,

Did you buy those exhaust band clamps, or did they come with your kit? Mine came with U-bolts, and the joints leaked. Swapped to the band type when the engine was out.
