That was welded onto the subframe so you could mount the motor using the first gen front cover.

Oh OK I like the way it looks I wonder if it actually stiffens the chassis in any way. I would assume it would I may put something like that on my car.

It should help, but my subframe has more then need bracing. The guy who built the car told me went nuts on the bracing for the subfram.

I am trying to do kinda the same thing I plan one day to make 600whp or more so the more bracing the better. I really like this car and I hope I can take some of the good ideas off this one and put it into mine. Keep up the good work I can't wait to see what this thing is like when its done.

It sucks and the worst part is i went through 2 tanks in one day and i didnt even get to go into boost because the clutch would just slip.

So i got my old diff out and the new one in. Also pulled the trans so i could put the new clutch i ordered. Im going to have the car tuned for 250-300whp for now and once i find a turbo 2 trans im going to throw it in.

Nice. You might end up needing more radiator than that.

Was it hard to get the diff out of the expanded foam?

Stop blowing motors! Perhaps your car is allergic to boost?
