Loving the project!
But why not rims with 4x100 fitment? You can get wider rims then. Wider tires and more traction witch both you and me know is needed with that nice engine!

For the transmission maybe you should try with double stab-bars at the rear, not just the one on the right side.

Hmm not sure on the rims, the spokes are a bit too curved... and for all of the choice of 4x100 rims, surely that would be easier?

Do you reckon this would adapt a D5?

Cheers, Adam. I still can't visualise where it goes - inbetween the whiteblock block and the redblock bellhousing?

Thats right Ronnie, basically so that you can stick the engine on a 7/9 gearbox and make life easy, though in a 300 it'd go between engine and bellhousing.

Very nice project! I was thinking something like that once too but more in sport coupe style. :P

I'd go for that dark/electric blue one with that, would look great. Maybe similiar color as in Evolve S60R "Laser Blue"

or the Ocean Race color

T5 engine is 2.3l so it's completely legal. You just have to register it as modified engine and not with stock power levels. And somehow manage to get only 138hp out of it on paper to pass the inspection. ;)

But completely legal though.. SJS has 2.5l Penta. Engine in NA form makes ~170ish stock with carbs but as it's modified engine there's no minimum power so power is allowed to be lower than stock.. :lol: Funny but legal "Yes sir I added this huge turbo in my car and lost 30hp"

Yes, T5 and D5 lumps share a bellhousing pattern.
Ryan has a T5 lump up for sale if you want a spare, Adam.
