Great thread. Thanks for sharing. Any issues with the nicon rotary mount? I have purchased the same one. Also what led you to upgrade the ecu? I plan to swap my car and have purchased the Adaptronic plug and play ECU.

Hey man. The Nicon mount and pan are made really nice. The only problem I had was that it made the motor sit a little too high so I trimmed down the rubber mount. I do plan on fabbing up some solid mount for it tho. I also switched to the newer ecu because itís overall a better unit than the first version (faster processor, the need for only 1 ecu, emap tuning, etc) but thereís definitely nothing wrong with the original.

Well Iíve had some time to work on the car so the turbo/mani are back on, itís back on the ground and it moves under its own power again thanks to Shawn at turblown for remote tuning it. We have to still do some logs but itís on it way. I also decided to throw my 2way in my spare diff and replace the bushings, seals and bearings while I had it open. The plan is to swap this one in and take the stock lsd and weld it. Top pic is the stock diff and bottom pic is the Tomei 2 way.
