I used the stock transfer mount and thats were the motor sits.Its about a 3/4inch away from the valve cover.Stock drive shaft in back and upgraded the front shaft.The VSS sensor was the hardest thing i had to make work for the 4l60e two work right here is a pic of the sensor and the part that i fabed up for $2.00 from tractor sluppy.I had it running on my owen engine harness but it would not shift so i stepped to the window and paid $650.00 for harness from Howell Engine Developments Inc .Very nice Harness good people.Shift Great know every thing works good.Very happy with it so fare.
