I also spotted this on AWDs build - note the box built in to the bulkhead just off-centre:-



This would seem to line up with the bracket that holds the gear change cables on the back/top of the CRV box which shows how far back the gearbox has to go to get clearance for a standard round nose fit. You can see on the pic of my subframe that the rear crossmember tube would be a big issue if trying to squeeze under a standard round nose with that frame. I see on AWDs front frame that he has an upper rear crossmember that is cranked upwards to clear this bracket (just to right of the top bolt of the rear engine mount where it bolts to diff housing):-



Also just generally he has no back at all to the frame between the lower and upper rear crossmembers.

GEORDIE, how is the notch in the bulkhead in relation to the Mini pedal box (if you are still using the Mini pedal box) ? Does it affect the clutch pedal travel or does the pedal clear it ok ?

Also I presume you aren't running a heater as it looks like the notch would also interfere with the side of the heater too ?

Thanks GEORDIE, you do reference dog-legging the pedals in your build but there aren't any photos of what you did to them. Any chance of a pic of the dog-legged pedals ?

I ordered a Hasport AWD conversion transmission mount and the Engine side mount to suit my engine.



There was a little issue with the Transmission Mount



One hole needed enlarging



then all was good
