Finally home with the Meccanica Motor Mounts installed

Home and ready to start plumbing and wires 👍😃   Thanks to Emergancy Hookers Towing for a prompt on time delivery  Ready to plumb and wire Exhaust also needs to be sorted, supposedly not to hard  Lots of room for Radiator and Electric Cooling Fan For reference, a quick visit to see Jags in Vegas to see his wiring  Only 5 wires modded into ECM 1 HD Wire to Starter from Battery 1 to Alternator  1 easy ground point

Almost off the lift

After quite a few hours fitting, the Motor Mounts are just about done, all tacked up and ready to be Finish welded and painted. Meccanica did a great job Fabricating these up.  Next week the driveshaft will be done and the new center support bearing can be welded in and the transmission tunnel welded up

Finally on the Lift

Well the Backlog of 02's slowed me down a bit but now the shop is making it happen. The subframe and Transmission tunnel were pre-cut so the motor could go up and get positioned. first lift showed that the Intake had to com off for a rough location, once that was done we installed the Intake to get the position dialed with the dimensions bianchini provided.   Nice amount of room for the Radiator and Puller Fan It was tight but the Intake went on Coolant

Spent some money and bought some bits

Idle hands are the Devils tools.... So with some down time I bought some bits: Craigslist HKS Clone Header and the last InStock drop swaybar: Aluminum Radiator as seen in bianchini car: Order a few of these guys for the future: Got WAY carried away in the fueling prep:

In the shop at Meccanica

Finally in the shop for Motor Mounts and Trans Tunnel. So why not just order the Motor Mounts?  I DID, in late November, every 4-6 weeks I was given an update "yeah their in the works, 4-6 more weeks" after 8 months I stopped calling and started my own plan.   So for the first time after adding all the missing small Honda bits the motor - transmission are finally Mated and sitting on the 2002 modified subframe:   Motor mount plates all cut out:

It begins

While surfing basic 2002 For Sale Forums I happened across a f20c swap kit at $2800 instead of the usual $5000........ after a few basic calls to the owner I figured I could sell all the Tii bits for much more.   Step 1, list all the Tii bits for sale Step 1B, catalog everything else that gets eliminated.   THE SALE: I sold the Tii swap Kit, motor long block, all Tii bolt on's, 123 Ignition, 5 speed conversion kit, HD Radiator, Alpina Header, New reinforced Sub
