    hey all,

    Just found this site and looks like I have all the experts I need here for my conversation question..
    I’m from Ireland and am in the middle of a F-100 build.its getting fully independent Jag xjs front and rear suspension with discs all round and an LSD .Im also bagging it so will need some power now to match the rest and am looking at buying an 01 ls430 3uz I believe and want to transfer eng and box together .

    See yet there

    Good luck on it
    Chris @ phoenix engine management may help you sort wiring and electronics related issues, he's located in UK and he does a lot of projects in Ireland
    Nev from F1Moto may probably help you mount transfer case to A650 transmission or at least point in the right direction

    Cheers,

    I’m keeping the auto, perfect for an old pickup, just a cruiser although I drove my donor today it’s its a rocket ship for a big limo....
    Was onto Chris and must get another rec or two from people that have used him, I’m new so don’t know the peeps yet ;)

    Hi Zagamuffin,

    I'll be looking forward to your future postings on this, I'm planning on putting a 1uz or 3uz into my Triumph Stag project, although it's still only in the planning stage.

    Btw, I'm also here in Ireland, in Wicklow more specifically.

    Btw, are you planning on using the original ECU or changing to an aftermarket ECU?
