We now have a working car hoist at home so i started on the transmission mount. Im using a 8mm steel plate as the cross member, it should add a bit of rigidity back into the trans tunnel after i removed most of the strength getting the shifter to fit. As seen in the photo the transmission is on a bit of an angle, a quick google lesson on trigonometry reveals the angle is 6.70. So i have started to make a part that connects the plate to the transmission with the correct angle. There is also a 4.00 angle fore and aft which also needs to be built into this part.

Transmission mount is done apart from paint. The plumbing for the oil system is just about complete. Just waiting on a few more fittings.

I have drawn up an exhaust flange which is being cut out of stainless steel by a place in town. For the exhaust system each runner will incorporate an EGT probe and also an oxygen sensor.

Exhaust flange is done ( stainless steel ), getting it lazer cut saved a lot of time. I machined some material of the flange so the whole thing isn't heat soaking the engine.

How about some lightening holes/triangles in the transmission plate?

Yeah, that's the plan. Probably just drill some big holes before I powdercoat the mount.
