Progress. In the form of a few pictures.
Got the engine back in. Excuse the garage mess at the moment. It is absolutely killing me seeing it in such a state.

Now I have messed around with the box mounts some more it's raised the gearbox up which means it's clearing a lot of things. Before the engine was resting on something.. more on that later for a lol story. The engine now happily swings on it's two mounts which is excellent news. Before when dropped in it was almost wedged.
So the next issue, the turbo being so close to the master cylinder. We all knew it was going to be an issue so just showing the issue in hand

For reference and for those wanting to do the conversion (don't) this is how far away the turbo is to the mc. New custom downpipe required

Plumbed more stuff in. Engine bay is looking scratty as f**k lately. Needs a clean or just to take pics without flash...

Finally the engine is more level now compared to what it was like before. I don't have a before pic sadly. Not to hand anyway.
