      Yes.
      Read OPs posts.
      Lots of minis & mokes including a G13b powered Sports Sedan, a couple of Swift Gtis, a Goggomobil, Porsche 928S, Polo Gti, BMW 540i, a WRX and a few others.

            So I got the motor on friday - was stinking hot in brissy the whole weekend so progress was slow, these things are heavy! Took me a while to get the stupid thing off the ute (just me )
            The sump on these have wings on the ends that had to be sliced off (get a pic later) and I also have to notch the crossmember a little more to clear the crank pulley. engine mounts are just 5L hilux mounts and still working on the gearbox mount,. I will have to make a tiny "clearance" bump in the tunnel for thats but that's no biggy.

            Have to go thermo fan though as there is no space for the stock clutch fan setup AND i cant use the factory powersteering pump as it uses the same real estate as the main chassis structure for the upper a arm

            Looks like I'm going electric P/S!!

                Astra electric powersteer pump might be the go?

                    naa not a fan of those - too messy/noisey, I took a toyota yaris rack home with me last night to test fit - looks like it will be fairly easy to use although I will have bump steer....ahwell.

                          Maybe look at an aftermarket fox body rack? You can get them "choppable" for custom length in non-power/power and I am pretty sure they do LHD/RHD as well

                            not very easy to get in AUS Xnke, if I was super worried I'd just use a daewoo centre mount rack but i'm lazy

                              Im pretty lazy at times, id just make a powersteer hilux box or something similar fit. Probably no room though.

                              Steering rack with electric power column could be all good though. You might be able to mix and match enough parts to keep it column shift auto?

                                I only have a manual colomn shift lying around so that may be a little hard - was thinking of doing a dash mount style like the old 50's mopars
