Very cool,  Will all this fit in a Z32 2+2?  I'm loving those bumpers wings and skirts.  I'll have to check out the website n see if you've got pricing up yet. 

 

A couple Q's: On that oil pan, I guess it'll have to be installed only with the motor out since those rear bolts will be about impossible to reach otherwise, right?  Not that anythink in the Z32 engine compartment is easy to get to.

How well does the VH fit front to back? Won't it hit the radiator?

Yes, it will fit the 2+2. Thanks! It really has exceeded my expectations i had from my imagination! I'm slowly getting everything uploaded onto the website. The oil pan isn't listed yet.

 

It's a tight fit, You need to install the oil pan with the engine out, install the engine in the car and then bolt the transmission from under the car. The oil pan will not clear the sub-frame when installing if the transmission is attached. I rotated the transmission mount 180 degrees to move the transmission and engine towards the fire wall by about an inch. You can still use the OEM driveshaft. You will have to shorten the shifter linkage. With the engine being pulled back 1" it is centered over the front subframe. There is plenty of room for the radiator. I am relocating the radiator to keep everything hidden, and for room when I go turbo'ed.

This is about as far as I will go with the intake until I get the engine in the car. Time to get busy with body work!

Engine bay almost ready for primer... This man is the best auto body specialist I know, watching him work is like watching an artist. I cannot wait until he starts on the exterior, that's when the real magic happens!

Found some ignition coil packs from a VW that actually fit under the coil pack covers. They also don't need the adapter plates. They are more expensive though since I need to import them. Not sure what will end up being more affordable in the end.

I'd highly rec that you stay far away from VW ign. coils . I've replaced way too many of them at our shop , they're junk . Nissan coils are pretty good except for Maxima ( late 90s and early 2000s ) .

The all the VH coils have +/- 20 years of wear on them. This makes for a less powerful spark. They only put out 21kV to begin with. The Audi/VW coils put out 30kV from what I've researched. I have a friend who is putting down over 400 awhp in is S4 using the same coils. He's had no issues thus far. I was reading up and VW has a recall out for some of their coils. I'm thinking they know there was an issue and got it fixed with the newer ignition coils. I'm going to take a look at some other coils as well, like 350z ones.

Made some progress on the Z this weekend. Got the fenders and hood in place. All the gaps are perfect and square. Passenger side fender it in primer... installed the hood pins, anad repaired all the dings in the hood. Started fitting the side skirts. Hopefully the front end will get done this week!
