Small update:
 
Added some cuts out to assist with cooling


 
 
Front Coil overs installed

 
Installed a pair of 12" pull fans to assist with heat escape
 

 
Installed / test fitted border style side skirts, only so it looks simular to my other sw20 track car ;-)

 
Fitted racing seat on factory seat rail to maintain low seating position & slide function


 
Next on the list, install rear wing, fit up dash, quick release steering wheel & fabricate accelerator pedal mount to allow 2gr pedal / position.

Great to see you are finding time to get back into it. I like the cooling option. 
Nice to see some nice new flash parts the car. You are also fitting a half cage?
Have you spoken with Marc in Canada about ECU upgrades? He seems to have found a little more performance from the ECU.

Not planning on fitting a cage, do you happen to have contact details for Marc in Canada regarding ECU upgrades?

- Install associated digital dash sensors into the engine
- Mock fit gearbox to engine
- Fabricate exhaust system & mock fit up
- Prep sub frame / installation of rear coilovers
- Prep engine for install into Mr2

Whilst engine bay empty, waiting its 2GR, thought I would clean up the coolant overflow bottle, as very hard to see when engine is installed. Hopefully this will help / assist with future coolant monitoring.


 
Marked 'Full / Low' levels

 
Marked on the hose 'High & Low' levels

 
Electrical tape added for levels


 
Re-installed back into car... probably never see it again, but looks great ATM!

Ah... forgot to add this.
Made up a 20mm thick accelerator 2gr pedal mount.
Plan to use the original Aurion accelerator pedal. Will see how it goes, I matched it to the original mr2 pedal, height etc, so its positioned exactly the same :-)
