thats not too bad a list, could you not remove the rear seats and have it certified as a two seater?

that drop will be a challenge, what brand are your coil overs? i don't know if mine have 40mm of drop :( maybe disconnect the swaybar and take it for a recheck.

does your sump sit very low? did you lower your engine on the mounts or do you just have a massive sump?

Man its been a while since i updated this the car went to my mates place getting the fabrication done and came back and now the long task of getting it finished has started.

first job hang the exhaust:

next up was mounting the intercooler and piping:

intake piping:

and dump pipe/wastegate pipe:

also picked up a couple of driveshaft loops for a R32 sedan:

a Fenix radiator was purchased:

power steering was sorted:

Coolant line was sorted:

LS coil on plug setup has been mounted:

Exhaust has been wrapped and installed for the final time:

hot side of the engine is fully assembled, oil feeds and returns, dump pipe the lot:

Switch panel in progress, and new 3 bar map sensor:

and Adrian (Pizzaboy) has made excellent work on the wiring, still dash and engine loom left, but getting there slowly:

oh and have ordered a Haltech Street dash so that will look nice in the car when it turns up.

have you checked for any vacuum leaks? does the car have a standard bov?

very unique, how much effort was involved to make it fit in there and mate it to a trans?
