My Rocky Jennings 2.3 engine is almost complete and I'm putting together a shopping list of parts to go with the install.

I already have all new hoses for the engine bay and I've already replaced the radiator, rad hoses, SS coolant pipes, SS coolant tower, and new heater hoses.

Looking at purchasing

SS exhaust
new thermostat housing and assoc parts
GoWesty alternator bracket fix
new motor mounts

anything to add?

You'll want a 10cent remote oil cooler and oil temp/pressure gauge set

oh yes, forgot, I ordered the 10c oil cooler.

Need gauges...Rocky is relocating the oil pressure manifold. Can't say I know exactly what that means...

yes, not sure why it's useful...

I'm guessing it makes the oil pressure sensor easier to access?

Thought I’d bump this from the blissful past and ask how your motor is working out. Happy with it?
