I've been working on getting my corona wagon swapped over the past couple weeks. I am using a wide block 4g64, fc rx7 trans. I am pretty space limited on the passenger side thanks to needing to tilt the motor due to the bell housing and trans shifter. I ended up building my own intake manifold, motor mounts and crossmember so far. Here's a few pics.

Wow, you certainly picked a challenge there, in aus we mainly got east west mounted 4g in evos so conversions are very rare, work looks top notch so far.

Will the tilt make any difference to the 4g or did they come mounted like that in some configurations?

Thanks! The swap is very straight forward on this thing. I am going to sump the oil pan to help combat any sort of possible oiling issues. I'll have more pics to update soon. I am working on my charge pipes now.
