If you do decide to go for the front mount option, let me know! I've got a friend in Aus that should be able to take the Arc intercooler off your hands rather easily. I've always wanted one, it's just difficult to find one in decent condition.

Sorry Mark, after much head banging i have ended up with this combo , you have to look hard to see it's not JB-JL.
going to be a lot more driveable now with the smaller turbo and i have targeted only 60-70kw for this little car, which will still make it fun and economical.The jb/jc combo was a mismatch, without having the crank and rods to go with it. In something like this move ,that combo would be a pain in traffic anyway, as this is destined to be my new daily.
Hello guy's, Have not posted for a while time for an update. Finally got around to removing the engine/trans.
Have decided to fit the big block EJ 989cc and 4/speed auto to the move and turbocharge it will finish up with a lot more torque and that's more suitable for something like this move rather than the high revving small capacity JB-JL which is more suited to the lightweight Mira shell. Auto because it should be able to handle the extra torque of a turbocharged EJ and where the 5FMT Move/Mira box has proven to fail.
Donor engine trans looms etc from very clean 98 Sirion 92,00klms.
