Have you already got the diff and gear box or are you wanting to purchase one and get it fitted?

James used a hks gear box

Best bet is to search online for the kits, I think you will be looking around 3500 for the gear box alone.

As for the diff I can't remember if you replace the whole rear subframe or just part of it.

I will have a look see what I can find as iv looked for this before

Nice one, I will keep that in mind

Iv just remembered I'm going to have to make the turbo manifold fit around the steering! Best get that in and connected up before I get the engine in position and do turbo manifold

As you can see, 2 fuel rails

Need to run fuel line from tank to one rail and then to the other and then to the FPR etc or which ever way it goes to the FPR then return line

Because of the manifold I have that stupid fuel rail on the outside which is not what I want ideally as its going to be right next to the exhaust.

Originally I thought I was going to be getting an FD motor but I ended up with this which has S4 13BT irons I believe, FD housings and rotors and for whatever daft reason the primary fuel ports on the centre plate have been blocked up so I can't even use them for mounting Injectors

 not knowing that the bolt patterns on this engine is different to an FD so I can't even use readily available aftermarket parts etc

ANYWAY......

Can you not spin the fuel rail 180' and have the connection end towards the front of the car?

Let me take some pictures of the whole thing as it easier to see why I can do it rather than explain.

Now if I lift the engine and square it up I think I might be able to get the fuel line around the back of it so we shall see.

I think I'm going to try leave that chassis support in there and work around it, going to have to lift the turbo up anyway. My exhaust piping is right at the back of the damned garage though so going to have to climb over all my rubbish to get to it plus I can get to use my divided stainless flange instead of the single entry I previously used.

Turbo might poke out of the bonnet a little

I will take a better picture of it as I didn't realise how dark the picture was

The engine is sat as low as possible, its sat on the subframe currently.

The plenym can be changed easily but it's the fuel rail that's hitting the clutch master.

If I got a pedal box I suppose  that would remove the issue bit I'd rather not get into sorting all that kind of stuff just right now.

Do you know if kev is still around?

I could really do with someone that has a stash of parts so I can swap and change things to see what fits
