We got the speed doctor bracket on there but will have to change the down pipe alittle. We had to move the radiator forward 2 1/2" and lower it 2" for the fans to fit the intercooler will also have to be lowered and moved forward so we will have to adjust those pipes also. No way to get a sway bar in this thing without having one made custom. Supposedly he told the turbo guys it was going in a street car but im thinking they just built it to fit in the chassis and figured we wiould figure out how to make everything else fit LOL.
We haven't run into anything that isnt fixable yet. The kit fits great in the chassis and if it was a drag car we would have no problems but being its going in a street car we need to run a full size alternator and a good size fan setup we need to make some modifications.

You got it to fit but how long will it live there? Is this a trailered car running only for seconds?

It is probably going to get warm to really hot. Question being can the insulation on the windings and grease in the bearings take the heat? I know the diodes and transistors on the circuit board won't like it, and may well stop working requiring a frequent replacement of the solid state circuitry.

We are going to move it away from the alternator and bring it in behind it. We should get atleast 1" of clearance and wrap the tube with thermal wrap.

That nightmare looks familar - trying to get all that stuff to fit is a major pain. It looks really good so far. Heat wrap is pretty impressive stuff. I can pretty much touch my down pipes while it's running. If you can get the alternator in the fan wash I think it should live o.k. with heat wrap. Clay
