The parts I have been waiting for? They came in. 

 

RHD M20 ITB kit. Note, the on engine pictures are absolutely the bare minimum to mock the whole thing up. I have a long way to go before they're actually on and functional, but I wanted to see how they fit in this chassis. The kit was designed for an E30, so I may have some challenges clearing the firewall. Though it fits mocked up, it's a very tight fit.

 

As if rewiring, replumbing and doing a full interior wasn't enough of a pain. I have other updates, but I'll catch up on those later. I'm just excited to share this bit.

Is that their 42MM kit? I am going to be purchasing this soon as well. What is your plan for filters?

40mm kit, I'm running an otherwise stock M20 so I figured no need for the bigger bore. I'm undecided on filters yet, I have a few options I'm kicking around but since there is no room for a plenum I'll just be running foam sock filters of some sort.

OK. I am on the fence abou the filter/plenum box as well. I don't even have an engine in the bay yet, so you are miles ahead of me.

 

What type of engine and transmission mounts does it have currently? I don't know if you can tell or not

Curious to know how you found out about RHD products? Was it through FAQ?

Sorry for the slow response. I don't know the adapters used to mount the engine, but it uses stock M10 engine mounts. I have a G260 trans, and it uses the stock E30 trans crossmember and mounts there.

I've been aware of them for a while, since I had my E30. I think my first introduction was via the KAmotors E30 running them. I had always wanted to run ITBs on that car but never could commit. I ended up seeing someone parting out their ITB'd E30 on R3vlimited recently, though they decided against it at the last minute. Lead me to breaking down and just buying a new kit.

The fit on your looks to be about as far back as it can go without hitting the firewall. 

 

Have you decided on an engine management system yet? 

 

(Sorry to keep pounding you with questions)

No worries happy to answer! I'm doing an ECUmaster EMU Classic, per recommendation of RHD. I had wanted to do the Megasquirt PNP system, but it seems like 50/50 for people having good results with it.
