Not my choice of engine or aspiration, but a proper build nonetheless. Wiring looks nice as well.

Subbing.

Thank you sir! I appreciate it!

I have started disassembly of it again lol. I think it goes without saying that this car is much more of an education tool for myself than an actual "I only want a fast car I can drive"

I figure since it is currently -4c and snowing, I have more than enough time to address a few things I wasnt entirely happy with my solution for during the build, and I would like to think I am continually learning as I am going, and thus would like to apply the knowledge to a few revisions.

Generation 3, Version 2 ? lol.

Anyways, I have emptied most of the engine bay, as I am going to start with re fabricating the engine mounts for it.

I had initially believed I did not have enough space below the turbochargers to design a bushed mounting system, which had led me to the solid mounting off the front of the engine.

I have since realized there is more space than I had thought, and have been nervous from the get-go about having solid mounts in it.

I have now completed my design for the mounts and will have them re-fabricated by the end of next weekend with poly bushings included in them. Of course this means I now need to re visit every where I had a very tight fit and need to figure out how to open up a bit more real estate given there will be a little bit of engine movement now with the bushed mounts.

Managed to make some good head way on the revised motor mount design.






I am significantly happier with this!
