That definitely frees up some space above the valve cover which I am in desperate need of. Thanks for showing the way and for making it WAY cheaper than the prepackaged conversion kits you find at the usual vendors.

I looked back on my Amazon purchases, I paid $99 for it... one thing to keep in mind, all the bolts are metric - which can cause some issue on the top, passenger-side bolt (I pushed the stud a bit out from center and it worked). In retrospect, I think I may either replace the studs with SAE or figure some way to run the bolts out from the brake tree and put the nuts in the engine compartment....

as an aside, I posted just this bit on Facebook - oh good grief.... I got lectured about how I should have turned the booster upside down so it'll look better.
for one, that someone thinks I give a flying unicorn about form is pretty amazing... but second, why would I put the hoses down by the exhaust manifold? or potentially have air-leak issues because it drains down? some people's children these days

When the armchair quarterbacks have won a Superbowl, *maybe* their opinions will be vaild. Until then it cal fall on deaf ears. The thing I love most about this site is the creativity and the fact that we're all here to learn from each other, not nit pick. Once I get a good head of steam going on mine, I'll start my own build thread. You'll see it here, not likely on CF...

my only hope is to raise their blood pressure, today's washers should adequately do it
more fitting - seems I got a bit generous with the motor mount


chop chop


close, time to tilt the motor


better


OMG washers


and brake lines

Boy - I don't know how a Fiat will compare -- This is going to be an awesome ride!
