Thanks man BIG changes on the way . Got a full write up on our site here in Ireland but will post it all up when it's done and dusted.
A total new body and a fresh 12PSI heart !

I just got a 1.8 2000 Diff/Prop/Half Shafts (Torsen type II LSD), bigger injectors, Link ECU, AEM Wide Band 02, EBC, 2.5" downpipe and exhaust to be fabbed up and then TUNE TUNE TUNE, also to install my side-by-side Honda Del Sol radiator and MR2 IC.

Oh yes, this project could be as big as the Mistro himself the 'Hustler' (but I doubth it), cause I'm gonna repaint my car myself afterwards, but ****, there's a big learning curve with body work and filler etc

Looks good but I think it's too far forward. Looks like the opening will be sitting tight above the radiator.

You measured?

Those vents look to be about 7-8" from the front of the hood. Look at his pic and then go to your car and look where he placed them.

I measured mine and it was about 8 1/2 inches, but some of my parts might be thicker than yours.
