    Hi all. In the process of fitting ca18 in my is200 and trying to level it up and was wanting to know is there any part of the engine that can be levelled up from. The engine is complete so cant level it up on the block. [emoji17]

    It sits at an angle to the left, but the bottom of the sump is flat when you look from underneath. So side to side I would go from that. Also the top of the inlet is flat... Pitching forward and back won't matter much I should just see where the tail of the gearbox puts it. Hope this helps...
