I'm sure you've thought of it Kam, but bear in mind the oil pick-up if you tilt the engine too far from standard.
I didn't think of that no, cheers for the heads up, got so much I'm trying to keep on top of with for this I'm missing basic things...

I haven't seen this engine in a 406 so I'm not sure how it sits. I'm guessing it sits in a true V angle?

Don't really want to take the sump off to have a look as the wrap around manifold looks a pain to remove

Well to be fair, if the driveshafts fit properly in the little pocket in the subframe, you won't be far wrong

thats a grate guide fynn, and the engine would look obviousely silly at a angle that would starve it of oil,
the dip stick reading will be affected if it works off the front side.

Bit of a change here, I've been spending a couple of hours here and there and slowly made the subframe up, all fits and clears and next to nothing needs to be cut from the front slam panel (my aim)

However it turns out we are having a second child so plans are on hold now

I've taken the V6 out and put the 1.9 back in, won't get much time (if any) but will aim to get this 1.9 working and on the road, it will see tarmac sooner this way



















V6 is packed up and stored away, will come back to it another time when funds/time allow
