The 104 is one sweet engine. What is the total weight of the car going to be and do you have any idea how much extra weight is on the front end now ? Did you change front springs ? Thanks.

I'm using a 3.27 lsd rear diff... i thought the E320's had 2.37 or something really low?

FWIW...just installed a new motor in a Acura that had a low mounted cold air induction system.....he drove through a 6 inch puddle !

Be careful.....get a bulge installed just up from the filter, it prevents road water from being vacuumed into the motor.
Thanks for the tip.... the strut bar and Camber plates were made by MRP (Danny) he no longer makes parts though

the car was about 2880 lbs stock... i don't know now, i will find out though... not sure if there's a whole lot more weight on the front (it didn't lower it much if anymore) i'm using FK lowering springs for the 2.6 with bilstein sport struts/shocks

That's really cool where you fitted the air filter. How hard is it to change?

Nice work! Very clean!
What car(s) had a 3.27 LSD? Is it the stock rear for your car?
What RPM are you turning at highway speeds?
Thanks! Brian

that looks very very nice.

with all that power you could pull a taller gear in the rear for better fuel economy. easily.

Any updates? What manual trans and header are you planning on using. Any video of the car. This is a really cool swap. I'd love to see more.
