    Yeah should be, or I can knock the ring gear off and run the flex plate, but the safest and easiest is probably changing the sensor.

    It also means at some point I can hand the whole assembly over to Mantic for a custom job when shit gets real.

      I was shocked Jim would admit to anything Citroen.

        Back in the hole for a test fit without the gearbox. Itíll sit higher than Iíd like but itís well within reason and I wonít need to do a rack conversion.

        Canít test fit with the gearbox until I pull the heater and chop the tunnel.

            This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

              It may not be needed.
              Engine sitting roughly where it needs to go. Original engine mounts seem to work albeit relocated on the crossmember (easy two bolt job) and gearbox seems roughly in the right spot. Will check further on the weekend. Only just so much I can do at lunch.

              So far all I need to do is cut some of the lip off the crossmember on one corner. The exhaust logs I will swap side to side. I put them on to confirm steering box clearance and itís sweet for that. Going to stick with log manifolds. For reasons.

                  Hmm, is that the sweet scent of twin turbos I detect?

                            Must admit between the oven cleaner and this on the roof of the car I thought we were baking a cake today:



                            Engine bay cleaned up surprisingly well. Before and after says it all:





                            Also, I continued my impression of an incompetent first year apprentice by trying to put an engine mount bolt in the wrong way. Hey, I make cars shiny, not fix them
