    thanks :)
    I did want the
    mounts on the subframe but the mounts in the engine were just to far forward of the subframe so the mounts would have to have been swept back would have looked right or wouldn't have been strong enough so I decided to them like I have
    why do you not like them may I ask ?

    well bought some more bits today at the show

    I'm waiting on a dizzy from the states as the one I've got is just too big so won't fit even tho it's only temp for start up
    but I'm thinking of running it and get it on the rd as it is at the mo put some miles on it till I swap it to efi

    so I'll be cracking on with the exhaust making this week at least get the down pipes done
    and I'll be all ready for start up

    I can't wait

    I do like them but not like the place of them sitting on the chassis ,might be that the car will like to go over the nose !!

    It really wouldn't have worked any other way the engine is futher back than the original and a lot lower so the weight dist and balance should be good
    only time will tell when it gets on the rd
