Pair of pro-tech dampers for the rear end (15" open, 10" closed), they only have 125lb/inch springs as I still have the 'short' torsion bars which will be stiffer than the original IRS longer bars, together they should be about right for the heavier engine and trans.


I went for the biggest bushes pro-tech had and didn't need any spacers at the top mounting, small ones either side at the lower end.


I held a G50 911 axle in position and luckily it looks like there will be enough clearance to the spring. Normally this wouldn't be an issue but with the trans moved forwards it was something I needed to check...




Paneling part way through, just section by air filter to do now and some general tidying up...

Unbelievable work Rich, that's just crazy.
Are you a metal worker by profession ? That's some amazing work!

Lol, not a metalworker or even close, this is my first attempt at this sort of thing! I'm a mechanical design engineer, designing electric power steering stuff mostly...

I put the engine/trans back in today to sort a few brackets etc out...

Sorry for the offtopic, but do you by any chance have, or can source the internal schematics for the electric power steering pump used in the vw fox, lupo, polo, the Seat cordoba, ibiza, and Skoda fabia?
It's the pump that I'm trying to use in my setup, but normally it had this sensor on the steering column, that gave the signal to the pump to start only when the steering wheel was manually turned or something like that. I'd like to override that somehow.
This is what it looks like, and all I could find was that schematic, in that quality and language )

Sorry Xellex, that's not one of our (TRW) systems...

Dampers are £80+VAT each, bargain compared to other stuff out there IMO..

Done some more bits and pieces. Put the engine/trans back in to finalise placement of a lot of ancillaries..

Paneling now done, might add another few fixings depending on how it they are with a foam seal in place


MAF side of the air filter assembly done, MAF bolts on to the side of the housing, reducing elbow connects to original Subaru turbo intake pipe.

Additional brace to support the rear bumper mount. It is now strong enough that I can lift the body off the chassis with no flexing but still unbolts to aid engine removal.

Hi, this picture is a very good picture for me to as a question. I believe I mentioned some time ago, I would love to try the 6 cylinder. Here goes my question.
1. by moding the tunnel and using the coilover shocks, do you believe the 6 cylinder will fit using a 915 trans?
