Well – we got the new mid engine plate.

Now comes some meticulous measuring to make sure we position it right.

In order to do it accurately, I’ve decided to take all my measurements with an unused block. This affords me full access to all pieces around the motor and allows me to locate the motor mounts and angles accurately. This would be much more difficult with a fully assembled engine.

I think the mid engine plate will not only rigidize the powertrain in the chassis for this engine but also if/when we add power-adders like turbos. Exciting!

Here’s me and my son installing the bare block to take some measurements.
