Project V8 RX-7: Part VI - Installing the E-Rod LS3

In our last installment of Project V8 RX-7 we took a look at the T-56 Magnum transmission from Tremec we’ll be using for our swap, now it’s time to bolt it up to our E-ROD LS3!  Close attention to the cover of our last article could have caught a sneak peek of the one remaining component we need before we marry the Magnum to the Quicktime bellhousing—the throwout bearing.
