Apparently i have missed this build thread for the past couple of years.

Great work, I hope it makes over 230 with it being a big 4 port. SCCA Eprod motors make ~230hp with a 6port street port and a Webber IDA with 42mm chokes.

Is that to the wheels? If so, that's reassuring since I'm effectively running a 55 mm IDA setup.

There's really not much left to do. I need to mount the radiator shroud and fan, wire in the reverse lights and oxygen sensors, and get some spark plug wires. After that it's a matter of setting up the ECU and display and getting a baseline tune. I've been poking around Haltech ECU Manager and RacePak DataLink programs and I think I understand the setup process. It's setting up an initial tune that has me stuck. If anyone is in, or knows someone in the Richmond, VA area familiar with tuning rotaries let me know!

I made them myself out of the original vinyl top halves and ABS plastic. Since the car is a base model it was easy to separate the halves of the door panels. I used the original cardboard bottom pieces as templates for the ABS plastic. I painted the vinyl black and covered the ABS in knock-off Recaro fabric from eBay. The door pulls are just red nylon straps secured using two of the holes for the original handle.

I think I've often complained how much I didn't like my original ignition coil mounting location (behind the driver's headlight). I'd been toying with the idea of moving the coils to the top of the engine, and even went as far as making a temporary mount out of ABS to see if it would work. I finally decided to transfer the concept over to .060" aluminum:





My intake really has made life difficult. If it weren't for this thing I'd still have a top-mounted alternator and I've have more room for the coils. They're about 1/8" from the bottom of the filters.



Add some custom Magnecor wires and that's all:



I'm nearly done with the sub-harness for the reverse lights and oxygen sensors. After that I'll mount the radiator shroud and fan. Then, it's done, I guess. My engine harness isn't ideal, but that's getting resolved later in the Summer. But really, the only thing preventing me from getting it started is my lack of knowledge/confidence to set up a base tune.

I have the same set of coils on my FC. I managed to mount all 4 of them in the space vacated by the stock trailing coils, and even repurposed the lower stock coil mounting bracket & upper stud mount in my design. I'll post up pictures later (don't have them on my work computer).

Anyway, I fabricated up some simple AL brackets, and using a combo of long bolts, AL spacers and strategic stacking of the coils in a 2X2 configuration, and a bend on the top bracket (to line up with the top stud), it all in fits neatly there.
