Are you in Australia ? What is the Wilwood set up you're using ?

Are you doing an auto trans on it ?

Picked up a c30 wreak and stripped all the parts I need to get the amazon running, I'm using some of the modules and wiring to run the motor in the amazon, I did think of going a stand alone ecu but this way is easier and it's free asides from the tune.

Shortened the 960 sump and made a new water pipe from a mixture of a 960 and c30 item.

Sectioned the old 40L fuel tank and removed the baffles,







Sat the new aeroflow 57L fuel cell in and needed to make a little more room for fittings.

I'm using the vent for the orginal heater box that's a high pressure zone to feed my cold air intake.
This will house the filter and maf and help to keep the bay tidy. All the engine loom fits through one existing hole in the firewall and the rest of the wiring for the front of the car runs inside the passenger guard

As there are a few complications in regards to oil supply and delivery when pairing up the RNC white block with the 960 sump due to the oil cooler being incorporated in the c30 sump I've had to be pretty creative to achieve a result that works for this application.
Oil cooling is taken care of by a front mounted mishimoto cooler and is thermostatically controlled by an MRP oil filter relocation kit.
As far as maintaining oil pressure I have worked out how to do it. I'm not sure if it's been done before on this engine in a rwd format but as soon as I get my proof of concept this could be a kit that I could supply for anyone interested In using this motor in a build.

Here's a more recent photo of the engine bay, I'm just in the process fo making an intake pipe and the one in the photo is just the stock c30 item twisted to fit.
