Well, 1st of all my name is Don, Ultramog was just a goofy name my wife thought up. I always wanted to do this and so I went for it. The 454 is going to sit just above the rear axle, turbo 400 dumping into a custom reverse rotaion (counter clockwise) gear box being made by a friend that has a machine shop that can do something like this. That in turn will dump into a NP205 transfer case siting in the front where the engine used to sit. This in turn will turn the original trans, which the output shaft will have a heavy duty bearing and bracket to keep everything in the right place. The frame is being braced so it will not twist. More or less thats about it. The 454 will be mostly stock with a rv cam and I will have to have a light foot. I will skin the project in 6061 Aluminum & rivets and most likely polish it out. I need some heavy duty hinges for the passanger and rear door. Im having trouble finding some.
