Well I'm almost there. Taken me a long time and many hours of figuring things out but I've fitted a Honda motor to my Sonic. Hopefully I'll be able to start it in about two weeks time. After that its electrics and body to be fitted. I plan to take it out to bed it in before I fit the body though.
I'll post some pics soon. I have fitted what we call a Frankenstein engine. Its a B20B (2lt) bottom end with a V-Tek head and Toyota 20v throttle bodies and a V-Tek gearbox. Using a Dictator management system.
The Honda engine runs anti-clockwise so it sits on the opposite side to the driver which is better for weight distribution. All the engine mounts had to be changed on the chassis though. When I have worked out how to post pics on this damb thing you'll see them. My knowledge of computers is limited so Bill Gates is slightly ahead of me.

tlight: Just so everyone is aware, Nigel maintains this page on behalf of the MEV OWNERS, not on behalf of the company. He does it in his own, precious time. He could take offence..... (Just sayin')

Oz: If you have trouble with the forum try using Firefox, I had to switch from Internet explorer to get it to work for me. Much better now I can use it again..

airforceone: I've been using Firefox and still having issues with the pages locking up. Not as bad now as it was when the new site went live so hopefully it will improve the longer it's running.
