    Getting close, so close!

    I must have missed this but does the turbo just run off the rear bank?

        I know you're gonna die fairly soon after this thing is running but let's not do it sooner eh and use some axles stands next time

          WOW SUPER MEGA AWESOME

          That is the business, man.

          My last 2nd last racecar was an openwheeler with a turbo 3.5 Magna 5 spd fitted at the rear, and was disgustingly quick. Only 200 rwhp for 880kg, but made far to many very expensive V8s look very silly. All that weight on the drive tyres.......

          You are onto the right thing. I'm waiting for someone to do a 3.8 rear engine Mirage.....

              I figure if this thing falls on me and i live the nopics will let me get a hoist

              I probably should use stands but I dont get under it while its balanced precariously on the jack. Everything is disconnected before hand with the sub frame sitting on rollers. Once its up i give the engine a kick and it rolls out the side.

                I may have a hoist for you, Running out of space to put them all.

                      As everyone is saying, super impressive work, I like the way its coming together! Wish I had your fabrications skills, is it something you do for a living or just a hobby?

                        Its just a hobby but im a mechanical engineer so i like to think that helps a bit. Really i think its more patience and perserverence than any particular skill. I like to give new things a go and learn new skills even if it takes a few goes to get it right. It takes a long time to get stuff done and i still think ive got a long way to go but the end result can be pretty good.

                            I actually laughed out loud looking at this thing today. Absolute madness.

                              Um, wow.....it is fully fledged shmick looking insanity.

                              Always thought the 1MZ was underrated in its original body, definitely needed something tiny and rwd to make it stupid quick

                                Hey I've got important daihatsu things to do... I'l leave the carb V8 stuff to mouth breathers such as yourself!

                                You could however come down for a visit like you keep promising and do something with it for me.
