M1038 Project: Engine Installed

Having acquired an early model Marine M1038 (circa 1985) quite some time ago, we finally got around to installing an updated powertrain.  We chose to upgrade the engine to a 6.5NA. (realizing it is detuned, but also has less parts to fail). This retains the 3L80 (TH400) originally supplied. Additionally, this updated the Transfer Case to the AMG 242 model.

Engine installed and chassis freshly painted with CARC substitute 911 (flat black) on September 27, 2018.
