    where do these wires go?

    Just zip tie em up out of the way. All those wires are for is the torque converter lockup function.

    Never trust a crate motor

    Wow. What a hack job they/somebody is doing. Never trust a crate motor is right.

    Never trust a crate motor

    A standard size half mixed with a 26 thousandths under for the other half? For one rod? Jeez what a mess.
