I had a good day yesterday and managed to get the gearbox pretty much where I want it to be.

I had to notch the subframe to allow the gearbox move across.

Its a bit of a snug fit....

Then had to trim back to increase clearance for the gear change

Plenty of space.

And cut a small notch to clear the diff housing.

Then trim out the tower hole to clear the CV boot.

CV clearance with drive shaft hanging from a bungee

Ive also managed to source a Mk1 Punto 60 engine with a blown head gasket from the same mate who gave me the gearbox, so that will help me get the engine mount sorted, I might use the 60 bottom end and replace the head gasket and fit a Punto 75 head and cam Ive just won on eBay.
Any engine will fit in any car as long as you have brains and money.
If you dont have the brains it'll cost you a lot,lot more.
