well here is my long term build that ive been working on and off for like 7 years. I am in the middle of paying for a wedding so working on it is a little challenging but shoot to finish it soon before next summer.

 

Here's how I got it, my mom and brother bought it for me for $100 when times were really really tough for our family but they knew it was my dream car and sacrificed to get it for me. I ended up swapping in another L-series because the one in this one was toast and with the replacement it was still junk so I elected to go with and SR20DET that I actually got with selling my swapped civic. All was going well and then I lost motivation and stopped working on it for a year or so and hit it hard again. original turbo kit I was going with was a hy35 with ebay wastegate and supporting mods due to what I could afford at the time. then upgraded and now new turbo kit is a Spooling performance twinscroll custom made manifold with twin water cooled tial wastegates, custom Blacktrax intercooler, 850cc topfeed injectors and an AGP GT35r turbo. I am missing out a lot but here are some pictures of it from the start to where it is now it now.

Any photos of the mounts you welded to the frame to attach the motor mount to? 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.


This seems like an elaborate ploy to get me to say "I like the D".

That tells me exactly what I needed to know. Thanks!   :thumbup:

 

 

One more question, though. How is the clearance between the oil pan/crank pulley and the steering rack?
