Going to order all my brake components (lines, MC) and Pressure Plate so I can install the transmission once and for all, then I can take measurements and call up Driftmotion to make me a driveshaft :).

No, no aluminum, that's not ideal for the twisties, sticking with Steel :) .

cut out this tiny transmission hump meant for a KM110 4spd, will widen it later to suit the R154.

Bolt up new trans for mockup purposes

need to make some adjustments to fix this, we don't want to have to cut through the cross beam sections. It can actually sit lower than this if we remove the stock cross member which is supporting the trans to allow the car to remain mobile in the shop. Plan is to angle the motor just a tiny bit to the sweet spot where the tailshaft housing clears the tunnel just enough.

Pedal assembly mounting plate arrived, now hacking up the firewall will be easy and clean! Makes installing the wilwood stuff and hydraulic clutch easier.

Hell with it is how things went. Just need to get camber plates to correct the positive camber caused by the widebody struts, but as of today, 5 lug swap complete. Now I can order new brake and fuel lines (-3 AN & -6AN respectively) as well as all three master cylinders.

Left side still needs a coil cut to match the right side and sit right where it should with a lightened front end (dummy block and head with trans bolted in only).

Changing direction! No more 4g63 swap, dropping in a Galant GTO 4g52b in instead with the factory dual downdraft Mikunis :).
