I already have the megasquirt just need to wire it in and do the fuel system and ignition. I plan on doing up the fuel system this weekend. depending on how long that takes me, I might also do my wiring but we will see.

Sounds like you have it all under control. You'll be all smiles after your done. I know, I have 1 running and another on the way. My new one will be a mid-engine toy.
Keep up the good work.

dont know if anybody knew or not but you guys getting the adapter from kep, outbackmotors.com tends to have a better adapter or so i think. theirs is sealed where the input shaft goes whereas the kep version is needle bearing. guess it all depends on what you like n prefer. always heard the sealed is better..

I just finished the exhaust last weekend. I removed a couple inches off one of the legs of the u bend.Welded the short end of the u bend onto the turbo flange Then I cut the u bend at the 90 degree mark. I angled the remaining of the u bend down 20 to 30 degrees and welded it, then added two 45's for a rolling offset to go around the head and out the rear.......

I installed a new trans its a wrightgearbox pro street I added new urethane, mounts and straps
the rear mount and urethane got in the way of the bolts on the adapter plate so I had to remove a little material on each side
