Engine Swap Build - Wed Jul 10, 2019

Quick update time!! - so been cleaning up the rear removable cage to get rid of all the old suspension mounts and what not, basically to make a little room for the back box / cat / pipework etc. I also chopped up the new stainless backbox (must be more careful with that angle grinder) to get an idea of the position and mounting I will need to sort, I've also finished the modifcations to the rear upper old wishbones so they will not fit the subframe correctly here are a few pics from the last couple of weekends:

Just getting the back box tigged back up after i attacked it with the grinder then i can sort the rest out, Ive also taken the turbo off the car as im pretty sure I'm going to need to move it!!
