Yeah Well my Best Bud, owns a Cherry 510 and I can't get him to take the plunge either! :) He was down this past weekend helping me in the shop, and every time I caught him staring at the engine Compartment of mine, I would hit him with a Shop towel, and yell There wipe the drool off the fender! Subtle Hint I know! :)

Hi I know this is an old tread and I have been working on my 4.2L (on the stand) with the help of:

a guy that did the swap on a Supra. Lots of good information.

 

PS I am Z crazy and I also have a L28T with a Jim Wolf setup and a Turbonetics turbo, a Titan 5.6L DOHC V-8 (23K miles),4.6 DOHC with GT42, 5.4L DOHC (TBA), 99 LS1, and a Mecedes Benz 3.6L Berabus stroker inline 6 (It also has clearance problems...Modified oil pan and ITB's (which I have already). Way too many but it gives me a lot of things to do.

 

Here are some pictures of the 5.4L just sitting in the engine bay for a look at clearances (the way it sits now in the pictures I have 6-8" from the back or the engine to the firewall. And I did some photoshop on the hood and the scoop.
