12-point? I feel like there are some ARP Honda bolts that require that, or the reverse of that (a 12-point male socket).

Good luck man.

let me know if you need any of the small bits. I have a lot of stuff left over from my attempted vq swap (discoverd spun bearing and gave up) .

Still needs clear rubber coasters on top of pistons and engine mount braces to fully stabilize the block.

Going to a new job soon, have jeep to tinker on... etc... I WILL get to the Miotta. It is just a matter of when.

Hurm, I've periodically given thought to getting a v8roadsters mountless subframe... but hesitated due to cost. I just noticed that I can avoid going through FM and paying 900. Going right to v8roadsters gets it for 750. I'm half tempted to go that route now.

Argh.

If that gets the motor in the car sooner, I vote YES.

My loins yearn for this project to come to fruition. That'd be a ballin' subframe no doubt.

ya that subframe is legit, get the full control arm set too and loose some weight :-) the new generation front lower control arm is ridiculously strong.

im hopin to do this swap next yr after my v8 rx7 is finished.
