    While transplanting 2JZ, Farooq sahib in Rawalpindi had shaved the oil pan, yet, it was rubbing the front fixed diff, so moving the engine further back was a necessity.

    New mounts for 2JZ engine, which will move it back by 5.7 inchs, were temporarily installed after cutting the portion of mounts of auxiliary shocks. Plan is to place the 2JZ on the new mounts once the front diff is installed, if the oil sump of 2JZ is clear of the diff, these new engine mounts will be properly welded otherwise we will move the mounts further back

    Can't see the pics but if the frame is open then why not reinforce it once and for all. Ideally the roll cage should also be bolted onto it to add more rigidity. We now know for sure that stiffer is better for racing, on or off road.

    Frame already strengthened from weak areas.

    Since the gear is going back almost 10 inches in total, driver seat needs to be back as well, therefore the roll cage has to be be redesigned. Insha Allah, we will put a proper FIA spec roll cage

    Time to check and clean all bushes, arms, hubs, boots, disks, their rotors etc

    All 3 bushes holding the front diff broken, two of the 8 axle boots need to be changed, front hubs have a little more play than normal, 1 of the 4 arms holding each of the rear wheels need to be changed, rest all in perfect condition.

    To be on the safer side, decided to put all 4 caliper kits

    Evo's pull type performance clutch and pressure plate was available but Rashid Abdullah, who is one of the technical advisers of this project, told to stay away from pull type clutches because they are always prone to malfunction. Have personally witnessed Muhammad Ashraf and Zafar Magsi out of rally/DNF on more than one occasion because of this clutch problem, so, pull type clutch is to be changed with a push type clutch.

    Plan to go to Bilal Gunj tomorrow and see which housing of push type Pajero gear is similar to Evo's gear housing. Have been told that the gear housing of the manual gear of Gen-II with 4M40 is similar to Evo's gear housing and that gear is a push type, so,, fingers crossed. Otherwise will order the kit from Thailand.

    Its been about a month or so and i saw the Evo sitting in the corner quietly. But gotta hand it to you, you've stripped it apart and have started to put it back in already in that period of time.

    Firstly, what I was suggesting was to re enforce the entire frame like done on the Nissan. Desi terminology would be to double the frame as is done on loading FJ40s and Hiluxes using an extra plating of metal on top/bottom of the frame. The weak area strengthening is a basic job but we know what this frame is going to be put through and the more rigid it is the better. Nevertheless, if it's already back it's OK I guess, because your gonna be opening it up next year again probably to fix bends etc

    On the whole, even I am taken aback with the magnitude of mods you are outlining as it is a far cry from the minimal modification attitude with which you started off. Not that I am complaining or discouraging

    Good to know that the roll cage will be redone properly, wonderful news actually. Would recommend that you should look into tying the base of A and C pillars to the frame as it would help the car take a lot more abuse by stopping frame flex. May also help the handling generally though difficult to say anything on that department as yet.

    All the best. Keep up the good work and keep us posted.
