Great to see someone else build a cavy let same as me and were at about same stage. Looks a good shell aswell. What you going to do about near side engine mount and top hat?? I got a few options but not sure yet. Also any spares lol

Car is looking great, always fancied a mk 1 cav to go nuts with but having a Manta sort of defeats the purpose as they are predominantly the same beast lol.

Iv also got a c20let in mine but using the standard box, no probs yet but interested in omega box conversion.

Whats the requirements for the conversion, parts etc??

Cheers. Scott.

Oh this is looking good!

Turbo looks way better on that manifold, gives better clearance for the mount to.

I wonder how close it will be to the shock tower when its fitted?

This car is going to be a belter!

I know it looks a 100 times better lots of clearance so can use the 1800mounts

No idea how close its going to sit to the strut tower hopefully get to dry fit the engine and box next weekend before paint just to be sure lol
