    Geez man, that's one clean engine bay! Removed extra brackets, ABS, A/C, & Cruise and relocated coolant reservoir. Me likey. Did you add more insulation to your firewall? It looks different from mine.

    Also, where did you hide all of your relays, wires, and such on the driver's side?

    BTW, good thread topic, I enjoy looking at other people's S50 swaps.
    There is more insulation in the firewall and the wires were hidden to the drivers side of the headers under that metal flap that sticks out, dont know how else to explain it

      how do you guys cram all those S50 wires into the E30 plastic wire covers on the firewall? I made a very weak attempt at that yesterday, it seemed too tight so I put it all back in the S50 plastic cover. I guess now that I've got all the wiring working I could try it again, didn't want to start modifying wires until I knew it all worked properly

        Widm3r - can you post some close up pics of the coolant expansion tank mount? I'm using the same one, mounting in a similar location, but I made a different kind of bracket, I didn't want to fasten it to the plastic wire covers. Just curious to see how yours mounts up. Thanks

                      Updated picture here. Still dirty and really bad lighting. I'm going to steam clean the bay when it gets permanently warmer.

                            Yeah, it's purrty stout down low...but I give up some top end for that torque. Most 24V's don't fall off as hard as mine after 6500.

                            I'm watching the Sunbelt Cams threads very closely...and I'll be ready when the final verdict is reached. It seem's as tho there may be some smoke and mirrors to their claims of 20bhp over the schricks.

                            I'm ready for it to sing flat to 7200...
