Awesome project, should be a riot once complete!

I'm curious to hear your feedback on the steering setup once complete. We did our first K swap very similar and then re-did a lot of it to put the steering rack back in the factory position. I also think our engine was protruding further forward than yours is, so hopefully you'll have better luck.

Would a dry sump let you put the rack in the stock location?

I'll certainly report back with how the steering is. Unfortunately there will be a 6 month gap of driving so not exactly back to back. You would still have to lower the rack from the stock position with a dry sump because of the angle of the motor about the crankshaft. That would be simpler to compensate for because you could move the outer tie rod point down on the knuckle and the geometry would be identical.

I got the steering rack bracket welded up today. the tabs are offset so that the larger tube sits lower than the oil pan for protection and it adds a flat surface for a skid plate to mount too. I'll be adding oil cooler brackets tomorrow and starting to permanently place it in the car.

I had some time to kill at work so I welded up the tabs for the oil cooler on the steering rack mount.

The steering rack is tacked in place and I just pulled the subframe so I can finish bracing the steering rack mount and playing the subframe.

I managed to get the subframe out and start finishing that up. I still need to finish plating up the cut outs and then triangulate the steering rack mount.

The subframe is complete besides paint. I'm going to try to get it fitted back in the car today.

I still don't see how you're going to package a downpipe without performing v8 treatment to the passenger side..

Without the brake line and wiring harness there a 3" 90 should fit. It may have to be more than 90 and then turn back towards the rear of the car, but at least a 3" tube fits between the bell housing and the subframe now. I'm also considering a side exhaust if that doesn't work...

Worked on placing the flanges for the turbo. I got them tacked together and I'm having the flanges scanned in CAD at work so I can model the manifold.

Made some progress on the manifold design. I need to make sure the turbo wont physically interfere with any of these tubes but progress nonetheless!
