This is how it sits right now. Still a lot of tweeking to do. I have to notch out the tranny tunnel, maybe add spacers for the sway bar to clear the oil pan or try to push the engine back a little more, and I busted the speed sensor.

I worked on this last weekend. Mostly it was taking stuff off, tweaking it, putting it back on, tweaking it a little more, etc. I wore out a bunch of my drill bits though!

Update - I pushed the engine back closer to the firewall, about 1/4" gap inbetween. The engine sits much better now and not resting on the swaybar. I clearanced the tranny tunnel, but still have to weld the hole closed and I think I want to redo the tranny xmember.

If it's not one thing, it's another. Now the brake line is rubbing. Maybe I should've got an RB25DET!

Anybody have firsthand experience with the ChaseBays master cylinder? It's really nice and cleans up the engine bay quite a bit, but damn it costs a pretty penny!

Yessir, still going! I had a slight diversion helping a fellow member here with a wiring job. Hopefully he posts an update soon, but now I'm back on track with my project. Got a lot done, but a lot more to go. I'll try to keep the updates coming.

It is with deep regret that I have decided to give up on this project. This beast has consumed too much of my time and money for me to continue on. It's just been a pain in the ass and this swap has turned out to be way above my skill level. I am debating on what to do with this thing now...
