Update: Engine is in and runs.
Update. The engine is in and running. It starts quickly and runs well. Still could use a little tuning. The Wideband O2 sensor is installed and had a small problem with the microsquirt. This has been resolved. Next is to getting it road tested and tuned.
A couple of notes: The engine fits really well, and in fact has more clearance than the original 4. OC (Mark) modified the original throttle body, which was drive by wire to drive by cable. You can see the details in one of the photos. What you can't see, is that Mark also got the original shifter to work, so the interior looks completely original! I choose a C230 after market header, which you can see in one of the photos, and it fits without modifications.
I can't wait to drive this on the street! The motor should be making 150+ hp, six speed manual, 4.1:1 gears and the car weighs about 2800lbs. O-60 should be in the low 7 seconds and about 30mpg.
