Forgot to mention the starter. I had to use the 4.7 starter, there is not enough room on the passenger side to mount the starter. I tried a couple of different starters (Jeep 5.7) but none would clear. Learned this the hard way after the engine/tranny were mounted so I drilled a hole in the 5.7 flexplate and mounted the 4.7 starter. If you use the 4.7 flexplate you will be OK. Also the engine sits to passenger side a few inches closer to the control arm vs the driver side. Kinda weird to me that it was not centered in the frame.
