Dribbling right now :P
Love seeing a car on a jig like that, you know it's gonna be very well done.

What are the specs on the engine? Turbo setup? Internals? Cams etc? Looks like an apexi or power enterprises turbo setup.

No that's what yours looks like, although that's got the obvious different bits like vvti delete/vernier cam pulleys, turbo etc and you dont usually see them without all the covers on very often. They are pretty tall engines when fully assembled.

Im itching to see this in real life.. Can see from that picture there is some nice caps around the tops of the turrets for the cage to mount to.. Is there any other strengthening in the engine bay?
I'm wondering if it's worth seam welding chassis legs to bulkhead and sus turrets, etc..

The engine looms awesome, would like to see specs :)
