up date time,
Got the engine sitting where I want it, ended up reversing the sump so now need to fab up new oil pick up, gearbox crossmember and make engine mount brackets.

Modified the extractors that cam with the engine and they are fitting nice and snug just need to heat/exhaust wrap them and make some heat shields for steering box.
I may make a complete heat shield that runs down to the collector.

Also going to have to make new brake lines so they don't run so close to extractors.

Image

Image

Image

Image

reversed sump, redrilled bolt holes and welded up holes not required.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Also some pics of my large extend porting template from pineapple racing in USA which i am going to add bridge ports to on the secondary and auxiliary ports so ill have a extend quad Bridgeport - all ports large extend ported then conservative bridge porting on secondary and aux ports.
No need to go massive on the bridge ports as it aint no race car and id like to get a few years out of it before its needs a rebuild

Image

Image

Image

Also just though id add in my 4 man beer funnel, his name is Pete the Penetrator and he knows how to get the party started

Image

Image

Also A pic of me so you can put a face to this build, hahaha :o :D :)

up date from the weekends missions,
Gearbox cross member done, notched out engine cross member, fabricated new transmission tunnel and spot welded in, made engine mounts which still need to be fine tuned and welded to front cross member also fitted gilmer drives.

gearbox crossy ended up being simple as = 75mm X 50mm angle iron with a notch for extractors and it bolted straight into factory cross member position

Quick update on some new changes to car.

Scored some Mitsi 15" steelies with 195/55/15 tyres for $100.
Might look at some 195/50/15 or even 195/45/15 tyres
Have painted one set gloss red and will get whitewalls laid on them and keep one set black for skid rims, couldnt be farked masking them out so i just used grease to cover the tyres and painted then just wipe the grease off and its all good.
Rears fit fine just a small adjustment to handbrake cable so it clears the inside of the rim.
Fronts foul on upper suspension arm so will need about 8mm spacers but may just keep it 13" front and 15" rears bit more ratrod/hotrod style.

Also made up fuel pump and filter mounting in the boot out of one of my snapped skate decks!!!
