    Are you doing this to a stock length frame? This should be interesting!

    Longitudinal- turbo.

    The duratec engine fits better and I do have the adaptor and clutch to Porsche gear box.

    I was thinking about this configuration with twin turbo and side mounted ICs. Knowing you, it's a single turbo, isn't it?
    Definitely interested; keep us posted please!

    I will have both. The twins fit.
    Lee Noble advised me to keep it a twin turbo.

    I generally like simple. Lots of redesign work,but the weight distribution is very good
    with the new position of fuel tank.

    Did you put the tank in the tunnel?

    Yes.
    I'll try to take a pic of the twin turbo in position, will see if they fit.
    It's so busy here, I'm surprised we got this far with this build.
