    Fuck yeah man this looks sick. Are you using a suzuki ignis column motor electric PS setup? ive heard that popular to use.

    Good to see you got the subframe bush retiner plates from raptor, definitely need them.

    Is that a whiteline 18mm bar in the pics? ive heard they listed it wrong and doesnt fit, that one looks like its the right shape though, have you test fitted it?

    test fitted my fibreglass hatch.

    my friend is a fabricator he helped mounting the engine and made a few brackets for my P/S pump as well, engine sits good after moding the sump webbing and using a SQ engine plate, gearbox sits good will be using a sq shifter relocate so I shouldn't have to cut the shifter hole.

    using the standard ra65 tail shaft doesn't need to be modified.

    had to cut the webbing on the bonnet to clear the big engine cover on the front of the engine, my stacks are 120mm long with trd copy adaptor and blacktop ITBS.


    for filters im going pipercross from SQ, ill cross that bridge when I get the parts.

    engine is back out again car goes off to be painted in the next couple of weeks then game on when it gets back

    it doesn't move the engine back enough to clear any sort of rack, can barely fit a broom stick in there. height wise is alright you need to cut the webbing off the bonnet to clear the engine cover
