Exclusive Content…Big Mike’s Prelude Build…Part 21…

It’s crazy to think that Nisei is pretty much 2 weeks away. Things are really starting to come together though as far as this build goes. Kinda reminds me that I need to start working on my own car soon. By working I mean, actually cleaning it and maybe even driving it around. Big Mike and his league of extraordinary gentlement went to work this past weekend and got the engine back in. Plus brake and clutchlines should be completed. Big Mike has been telling me how crazy all the new Bisi stuff is so I can’t wait to see it. Time for pics…

This is how the evening began for Big Mike…

Engine set to go back in…

Polishing up the rear engine mount bracket before it goes back in…

Bracket re-attached. Take note of the Greddy relocation pancake adapter because it’s coming off and being replaced by…

…this Bisimoto pancake adapter.

Work dragged on into the evening and they were basically putting this motor in with just a single work light providing visibility…

Rywire happily putting his life on the line to get this thing in…

Engine in…

After that, they began to work on mounting up the fuel system components…

All set up with the filter and regulator…

Ryan also bend and fabbed the hardline for the clutch master cylinder…

The line required an old fashioned hand-bend before it would line up perfectly with the fitting …

Another shot of the hardward being used to mount the cylinders…

Distributor cap no longer need and replaced with an AEM unit that controls the individual coil packs…

Back with more very soon. Time to start grinding and getting this thing done. Should be seeing all the custom Bisi stuff too, can’t wait for that…
