So I will say I like the engine bay, very clean. Just some food for thought make that upper section 1 piece across and stud it from behind and it will be very clean. But i will say I like it.

Make a bracket on each side or go with zus fittings. It will be way cleaner. You might like me for it.

If you're staying NA, I don't really understand why someone would replace the KA with an SR, but if it gives you something to do, then whatever. Is the point of this to help develop a kit?

Sr swap is way way way more expencive than a ka swap.

Almost $500 for the alt swap setup to fit the damn alt that hits the pitman arm.

Spriso is a good guy. He does a lot of SR20 stuff for roadsters.
