I wish mine had that. Sounds great. In the end with all the stuffing around, when I took it to Regency, they hardly checked anything at all. As long as your engineer has done all the reports and is happy with it, that all that mattered. The only thing he forgot to check was the front end bump steer, which they picked up on. In the end it wasn't a big deal.

just got the drivers side header on what a pain in the butt ..jacked engine up for more room slowly weave in the headers trying not to scratch 400 bucks of coating get them close slip in gasket get a couple of bolts started all the time wiping sweat out of my eyes cause it must be 50 degs in the carport .
get all bolts tight and lower motor back to line up mount and bingo we have a problem i cant fit the engine mount bolt as it fouls on a header tube by about 5 mm
jack up engine loosen off the header bolts pull exhaust out woulds a little lower motor and slide the engine mount bolt in then slowly do up the header bolts...all up about a 2 hr job by myself altho im not sure another set of hands would have been much use there in they clear all the shields by about 5 mm all round , man i have to give it to pace there is not much room for error i dont know if mine were harder than others due to my engine been moved due to the trans if anything i might have thought it might have been easier but thats another job ticked off the list and im about to open a beer or 3 and cool off in the pool cheers dean

Good one Dean. That's a big milestone to have the engine in.
Pity, the weather seems to have gone from cold to hot in the garage in no time.

Cheers,
Glen
