I cut and pasted Logan's post on my thread from the other forum. All of the comments here are from Logan.


Logan aka GtoRx7:

Update with pics
Finally getting a chance to post up some progress pics. Keep in mind that this is a dummy engine. Still waiting for some parts before assembly. We finished up the custom ignition mounts, and built the ignition wires (color coded for leading and trailing).











Also finalized the 20b conversion mounts for FC's. This set for Chris were the prototypes. All TIG welded and basically indestructible. I always disliked the mounts offered by other companies, and the lack of triangulation. So this solved those issues.














And of course the 20b header! So many hours went into this design. I will post all the details of it in our vendor section. The first two pics is sitting next to its twin, which is going to singapore for a n/a 3 rotor FD.



























Shot of the engine mounts from below. They are not fully bolted on.





Stay tuned for more stuff on Christopher's Car!

Wow, I can only imagine the throttle response you'll get from this motor.

I've always loved n/a's, power on demand, responsive, FUN!
