Im going to document the progress of an REW swap in my 90 GTU here. As of tonight, the motor mounts are done, just need to be cleaned and painted. Im waiting on a rear counterweight, then I can put my flywheel and clutch on, and drop the engine in the car.









Im going to use the stock twins, simply because its whats available to me. Same for the stock ecu, although I am going to use an AIC to take care of some extra fuel and possibly water injection.

I'm next in line for a CF UIM and TB elbow for my Cosmo motor.



I'd like to see what Jims thinks about this...but since he's gone...

Cool - we've just started mounting my engine with inch box too - that looks pretty good, I like the sleeves.

The engine is in, and I cant believe how well everything fits, most notable the FD 3" downpipe. Its looks very very close to bolting up to my RB turbo back where the fc downpipe bolts to the silencer. I was hoping the exhaust would be easy, but I never expected it to be this close. Mounts fit perfectly and everything associated with the stock twins has plenty of room.



Anyways, heres the pics. Just dont tell me that my UIM is green.
