    Last weekend I:
    Made a sturdy tunnel cross brace and trans mount.
    Totally redid the removable lower rad/IC support
    Offered up a driveshaft to assess options
    Sectioned the front subframe for external wastegate clearance
    Removed the engine and box for the final few checks

    My CNC

    Chassis brace/trans mount 80-90% complete. I'll do the final adjustments and last of the bolt holes once things are in their final position.

    Getting an idea of the front half shaft length/alignment

    Downpipe in

    With the removable lower rad support, it is easy to pop the engine forward and access the bell housing bolts

    After that, the engine is straight out the top. It is rather tight, but just about manages to fit.

    With it out I was able to start the final few beauty items.
    Last night I began wire wheeling the block as well as semi-polishing the aluminum bits. I'll paint the block tonight before doing the valve covers/plugs and accessory belt.

    I don't want them actually polished, just cleaner looking.
