Thanks mate, can't wait till this thing is back on the road... been too long yet again.

Really loving that update

Especially impressed with the cluster

Can't wait to go for a ride once retuned

Thanks Mick, I'll be sure to give you a call as soon as the retune is finished. I reckon it's still a while off yet though. Mainly waiting on Scott and it's very hard to get his time.

It was a non-trivial exercise?

Relaying what I've been told... Hopefully I've got all these details correct but not entirely sure.
- Fabricated new engine mounts, so the engine is now fully supported by the mounts. The original Gen 5 gearbox is part of the engine mounting, which is no longer the case after the conversion which is great.
- The engine position has been moved and also raised higher than before (another good thing considering the low mount turbo). The gear lever position and whether it would line up or need to be modified was a bit of an unknown, but the position worked out fine.
- Other items requiring modification or replacement due to these changes, i.e. tail shaft modified due to different length, new 12kg non-DCCD centre diff, upgraded rear diff to R180, new driveshafts, etc.

Apparently everything worked out perfect with no doubt some engineering nous which is beyond me.

Small update - had the tyres fitted to the new wheels this week. 2 of the wheels didn't even need balancing weights! Nice. 8)

Looks fantastic... Unfortunately no pics with the car on the ground yet, but I can tell will fill the guards better with the 19" wheels. :D

My mistake for the vague question, I just got a bit excited seeing someone outside of the US has actually had an STi box put in! Congratulations mate, all the hard work looks like it's paying dividends.
