Hi guys,
As my engine is out of the car just now I was hoping someone could do me the favour of measuring how much space is between the engine block to the subframe/bulkhead.

My turbo should be here tomorow so I'm hopefully going to weld up a manifold over the weekend but I want to make sure it all measures up ok and there is enough space.

Side note... Iv made no bulkhead mods! (And would like to avoid making any)

Scott.

Mines not far off 6 1/2 inches so similar to Bretts. It is tight on a mirage!

I'm starting to think I might need to weld in a bulkhead box.. Might save a lot of hassle in the long run and the engines out anyway.
Iv got the ihi rhf4 turbo, and it's going to need about 18cm to shoe horn it in. So I need to find a couple of cm somewhere!!

That's the weekend project sorted!
