Jrust,...page 12 post # 233 shows me pulling these 2 ears together, with a threaded rod because I installed the cradle ears at the bottom of the tranny ears then I belive U said nope they go on the top of the tranny ears So in doing that everything fit,..

Now I must spread the cradle ears to fit the tranny ears, which I shall be doing this weekend...FM

Sorry thats what i get for not keeping up on the posts. Sorry bud. Sound like you are getting there though. Wouldn't be a conversion without a few wrong turns. Screwed up plenty of things on my car.. Hell I installed my 944 turbo calipers on my front struts upside down & backwards(right side on left upside down & vice versa). Still worked but Eric at PMB had a good laugh at my expense on that one (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif) . Sometimes we just have to laugh at ourselves (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

Been following this build, small car makes header that should work for your set up and I would def ditch the 901. I was on the fence like you were. But after all the research it just seems like the most practical trans for the job.

Those yellow tabs or tangs are pushed down then carefully twist a wide blade screwdriver between the plug and its receptacle to separate the molex plug from the ECU. The fit is tighter than socks on a rooster, especially after several years of sitting. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Ok,..Iam considering 2 places to mount the ECU and harness, 1. near the engine bay fuse panel and then run the harness where the trunk torsion bars go which iam sure there could be a moisture issue Attached Image

and the second place is behind back pad or even under the seat passenger seat.Attached Image which is a possible overheating issue I would run the harness alond the top of the engine shelf just below battery tray ??

If you are going to go under the seat. You might want to use the dimple in the firewall, right in back of the seat, near the floor. It will exit into the engine bay, under the engine shelf. Then you can always make a hole in the engine shelf for wires that need to go on top. Whatever works best for you. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

You can use the stock regulator. The SVX guys recommended an aftermarket adjustable one to raise the pressure a bit (to 42 lbs) in order to keep the engine from stalling when the clutch is depressed (all SVX's were automatic) since there is no "load" on it when the clutch is engaged. I tried a couple of aftermarket ones but they leaked, then I quickly went back to stock. Turns out I didn't really need it.

The black pipe is part of the crankcase ventilation system. The top hose connects to the PCV valve on the underside of the intake manifold, you need another one on the bottom pipe end to connect to your air intake (the black plastic snorkel thing that brings air in and attaches to the throttle body). Since you flipped the intake you will probably have to get at least one straight hose and run it up from the crankcase vent to the air intake.
