I'm interested in seeing how your fuel cell works out, I might do something like that down the road... I'm getting tired of my pump sucking air below 1/4 tank. :lol:

Though I was just going to cut out the spare well, I didn't really think of the whole rear pan... But I guess you wouldn't really need the old access hole anymore, huh.

Holly crap that is far back! Is that going to make the shifter in an odd spot tho?

Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.

Haha.. Maybe. Motor is back roughly 6 inches.. Car is getting a wilwood pedal box among other things. I may have to space the steering wheel back and down with some hub spacers, but I am not too worried about it. I will however almost be driving from the back seat since I am roughly 6'4".

 Planning an exhaust tunnel to tuck the exhaust nice and high into the floor pan of the car, and to avoid getting it caught on things.

Big things to happen this weekend.

If i ever finish getting my car ready i would be up to maybe take a rid out durring the break in of my motor just to see the car :D. I am only 5"8 so i sit almost all the way forewords hahaha, My best friend is your height and he always has the seat pretty far back so i understand now, The shifter should be pretty close to being in the comfortable area

Anyone have any experience with Oil accumulators? Specifically what components are needed for installation, recommended placement etc..

Accusump makes a kit for about $300.00 you could mount accumulator on the strut tower. are you running baffles in your oil pan? have you starved the motor of oil while drifting?

Not when you are driving from the back seat.

i have never seen that pedal box from Tilton... if you could show a picture of the top of the pedals. are you going with the remote bias control? it looks like a really nice assembly

No, no remote bias for now.. I will just manually set it. I'll have more photos as I start to build the mounting rails, and install them in the car, etc.

In other news.. The rear subframe from a Q45 has the exact same measurement (center to center on the mounting bushings) as an IRS S12. If it were the same length as an S13 subframe this would mean the wheel position would be pulled forward a matter of inches (A ridiculous amount of cutting would follow).. However, it also appears to be LONGER by a few inches (as compared to an S13).

This could mean there is a remote possibility that with the exception of the rear mounts (which are easier to do, IMO) the Q45 subframe may simply drop in. I will know by this weekend.

Fingers crossed! Have you considered modifying the subframe ? I've often wondered if it were possibile - I doubt it's any more extreme than cut and shut suspension arms. :)

My first version of the S13 subframe swap was done that way, modified it to the S12 mounts.. It worked quite well until I destroyed it on a curb and needed to redesign the whole enchilada.

So, it appears the Q45 subframe was close, and while it COULD be made to work quite easily, I opted not to due to time constraints and the ready availability of S13 parts.

Some comparison shots of the two:



The Q45 subframe loosely  fitted. You can see the front diff mount 'member' is far to thick and hit the floor pan. On an S12 with a long snout diff, this area is much thinner overall..



Rear mounts dont line up much better than S13 either.



Oh yes, and as you can see - we have flipped the car..







Fixing rust holes, mounting the subframe, coaxing my floor pan into place, and plumbing fuel and brake lines will be the name of the game while the car is inverted.
