Yeah that was the guy.

I believe that you need to open up car body a bit to make box fit + you need to move shifter a bit as it will be in different location, can't remember if it was too rear or too forward with default linkage. I have seen somewhere pics of M90 mated to redblock and installed to 360, just can't remember where I did saw those, but for fact I remember that bottom of car needed to be opened to make box fit and shifter linkage needed some modifying.

Not big issues considering how much work there is in whole project and that rear axle might need some planning, width is bit wrong from my memory. 1030 or 1031? They say latter would be bit stronger, but don't know if it really matters, it will be shattered to pieces anyway when there is enough power :lol:

Haha, no worries. Just an idea, as Bryn (who was buying Mike's silver 240) turned up to find that one of his steels was buckled.

Oh...I meant to remind you...don't forget to give Mark / BB-Q a shout about those pistons & rods! :)

cheers
