      Not a chance without cutting some supports tons of figment issues to work through

      How much ground clearance have you got at the bell housing? and sump and the power steering bracket?

      We dropped the mounts down slightly on a MK2 to give us about an extra inch clearance.

      Sorry typo. It was a MK1 (with a MK2 engine). (same mounts as you have). It's been a while since I done it.

      MK2 is much easier. We cut the engine and gearbox mounts down to get more clearance on a mk2 VR conversion but that's a fairly well known adjustment to get the manifold and cover under the hood.

      The gearbox bracket is easy enough. You can bolt on a couple of plates into it with extra holes drilled to lower. Not advised if you have very little ground clearance already though.
      Engine side mount needs cut and rewelded because of where it mounts beside the belt.

      Talked it over with Scotty, and the easiest solution is gonna be to chop out the area where it contacts, and then learn to fiberglass.

      Make up a nice elegant bulge and try and blend it in.

      Not messing around with the suspension geometry.

      Not much to learn. Fiberglassing is very easy.

      Motor looks great in the car

      I just remembered a subaru hood scoop moulded to a MK4. It was actually quite tastefully done. Something like that might give you a nice bit of clearance. Another option is to buy a BMW M3 hood and use the bulge.

      I think thats a legacy scoop, that exactly the one i've toyed with using in my mind.

      Another option... but more work, since they are scarce.....

      I can almost guarantee that erebuni, or strictly foreign can source you that or similar.

      Looks like an og reiger or kamei?

      Irrespective; that look is the way to go IMO. Everything else would look a bit garish, and out of place; again just my opinion

      Agreed... Made progress feel like an idiot dv pipe needs some chopping and repositioning but much closer to a finished project.

      Decided since the hood will not be able to close for awhile, I'm gonna run the exhaust like this just to get her running and to break in the motor....

      Then hitup either RAI Motorsport or NLS for downpipe.

      Figuring out the radiator and heat exchanger setup, may be able to run stock rad, with chopped shroud and a slim fan.

      Heat Exchanger is small for now, as i just want to get this running and fall and winter in the northeast should be cold enough for this little guy.

      Down the road having Forge building a custom radiator / AWIC heat exchanger drop in combo...

      Brian,
      Your formula precision work is stellar as well, top notch!

      Alot of little updates, mocking everything up but the wiring, then ordering some proper lines to replace all the couplings....

      Things are starting to come together, too bad, it all needs to come apart to drop in the built motor...

      So, is the entire weight of the intake manifold/AWIC supported by the runners/ intake flange? Or are you counting on the turbo to throttle pipe doing some support as well? The welds are beautiful and I'm sure very strong at the moment but aluminum does fatigue out with vibration. Especially with the added weight of the AWIC, it seems like there needs to be some more support for that part of it.

      Silicone a 1/2 an inch from the turbo hot side = bad idea.. heat sheild might not be enough.

      I can address that issue, won't be hard.

      Coming along nicely.

      Is your motor solid mounted? If not are you worried abou the motor rocking to much and hitting the fan shroud?
