Been meaning to start this thread for a while now and find myself almost half way through my build. So sorry to all for only sharing half the story. As im building a bit of a hybrid using a duratec engine with a mx5 mk3 gearbox(similar to that of the sport250) I thought this thread maybe useful for anyone doing a similar build. I'm also looking for a huge amount of advice as in terms of experience i have absolutely none and am a keyboard warrior by trade. I purchased my kit exactly 12 months ago at the stand at stoneleigh. The kit i went for was the sdv fw starter kit in red. Having fallen in love with the looks of the s2000 I decided to go for the v8 bonnet and nose cone. This will be accompanied carbon by effect arches and carbon rear diffuser. So progress wise to date..... I've pretty much got a rolling chassis. The chassis has been sent away to a friends who is currently modifying the gearbox mounts to accept the mx5 box. As the engine and gearbox are offset by 10degs I will keeping the original engine mounts and have to live with a slightly bent gear stick. This make sourcing items such as throttle bodies and a wet sump a little easier and cheaper. progress pics to date....
