Good news: the engine is hanging in the subframe, in the enginebay! yeehaa, I've got it done. (yes, I know I'm only half way) As the digital camera is charging currently, pictures will be available tomorrow.

Now I'm going to continue with the JF (www.velde.co.uk/mini/jf.htm). This topic is going to be quiet for a while until I have that mini is ready for it's paintjob.

Cheers,
Wouter

Looks like you are geting closer to the end objective. In my test fits I have the engine tilted forward a bit more like in the doner car. Is the bottom of your oil pan even with the ground. It will most likely work OK in your set up and that is why you can use the oem mount bracket.

I think because I tilted it more forward it hits the grille area and I didn't like that. In the end I will probably make a custom mount. It will not be that difficult and I may even make it out of aluminum. JS

Hi,

it is almost even to the ground. I can't go any further back as the towers are in the way and I need space for exhaust. I'm not using a flipfront, so that's an extra barrier

Cheers,
Wouter

Hi Wouter

That is gonna be tight! You could make the section infront of the exuast manifold (The thing that you´ve cut away) removable if that helps. A friend of mine did that on his mini. It looked pretty neat! Keep up the good work!
