    Right, It makes sense that it doesn't have to be perfectly in line since it is constantly moving. Thanks. I guess ill just have it pointing in the general direction as close as I can. Cheers!

    Havnt done too much the last 2 weeks, I have made a cardboard radiator to see what size I can get away with Anybody have a better way of lining up the gearbox output with the diff without a drive shaft? Here I have just put the camera inline with the diff flange and zoomed in, with weight on the diff of course. Im am about to tack up the gearbox cross member but not 100% on the alinement. Any ideas?

    Cheers man, I was hoping to run the the exhaust under the extractors, with the left turbos exhaust running down the right hand side (if that makes sense), but theres just not enough room so im going to run it above the manifold. It might look a little funny but iv got to get it back there some how. Any ideas?

    My engine mounts. not pretty but should do the trick, they are pretty solid. Pictures are a bit out of sequence... but you get the idea

    Thanks guys, I wish I could claim the sumps welding as my own but it was one of the aircraft engineers at work, the dudes a magician.
