Engine mounts have been made up and engine is finally hanging without the aid of a jack and wooden blocks just have to make up the back and front mounts for it also raisded the engine up an inch or so so theirs no chance of it catching on any ramps which is good. More progress to come as i go along.

well you can think that lad but the guy thats helping me with it built a 214 rover that has 250bhp with 250lds of torque and is fit to run the 1/4 mile in the 13's and built a kit car and used to have a company that tuned cars so i think it will go well videos will prove you wrong.
