Sorry haven't been out in the garage a ton. Got some progress though. Started fresh on a new car as crazy as that is.

Mounting stuff is all complete. Subframe, steering arms/shaft/rack mounts, motor mounts, trans mount, subframe bracing. Did a lot of work on the car outside of the swap. Interior is all there aside from dash, seats, and center console. Engine bay has a lot more now as well. Also chopped up the front part in between the headlights and made it removable. Had a change of heart to retain as many oem features as i possibly can. This is why i went with a new car, get every stock part in my possession and mounted/wired up in the car all at once. As far as I can see it, I will be losing VERY few oem features. Cruise control will probably always be missing and, for right now, heater will be gone as there is a big transmission in the way. I will come up with a solution to that in the future. Full HVAC and A//C can be retained! Need to complete trans tunnel and then interior is all back together. Exterior is good but it needs 2g stealth side-skirts as they are busted. Have a long video showing it all below.

Bottom line: Still chuggin away and it's all downhill from here.






Look at all the room!

Finally some updates!

Why not a tube front crossmember? Seems it would be cleaner and easier than the weird coping to weld your subframe tubes to oddly shaped stock crossmember.
