Ahhh, I see said the blind man.

Yes, I am familiar with them, but unfortunately that's not what I have on the car - yet. If I have to make a change in the shock mounts, I will definitely go with thos.

It was obvious what you meant once I saw the pic. Funny how that happens isn't it?

I've got a bit to post, but haven't had the time to gather pics and do the write ups, BUT lookey what I got in an email today.

"The body is under Construction and will hopefully be finished by next week or so.
Spoke with him yesterday and he said the front end of the bodywork is already finish."

It appears we will be using the Norwegian body! It will take some modifications to fit our chassis, but I need to learn the finer parts of fiberglassing anyway.

This are excite!

So will the F20c fit under the stalker hood?
I'm pretty determined to fit a turbo k24 or k20 to an MX5 stalker so I'll deff be keeping an eye on this thread.

Contact Scott from stalker cars and he will let you know what will and won't fit. He could also customize it for you to make it fit.

I did already over a call and a several emails back and forth.
He's been pushing me to just use the Ls1, which I already have but I didn't like the camaro sound track coming from my Rx7 and in a lotus 7 clone it feels even less of a fit.

Would be awesome in a resto-rod but not this build.

The LS1 is all they really want you to build.

I have no idea if their hood fits or not as I haven't even decided if I'm going to use their pieces.

But from the looks of it I think it would barely clear. At worst you'd have a minor bulge.

Any updates?

I'm waiting to see the results of this project before deciding on a K24 or an Ls1. Based mainly on my concerns about the engine fitting under the hood / while getting decent clearence without a dry sump
