Been looking at wheels for a little while & was going to go cast gen2/v4 but currently they were outta the funds reach.
But I just happen to fall on a set of brembo wheels that I just couldn't pass up for the price

 Have 2-3 sets of brembos so may a set or 2 and go for the v4 wheels when I do my build

I haven't, just need to make sure no sharps but may look a touch rough at edges if makes sense but it isn't seen

I'll be honest once you have all the parts to swap over in the same place it's a piece of cake.
Having the engines side by side I could compare where & how much needed removing

Crank was already locked
I secured cams to chain & removed
Blocked/covered as much as possible 
Then basically the piece to remove vertical cut either side then horizontal to then remove the piece. 
Dremel, hacksaw blade & drill in my case
I cleaned out everything, hoover, brush, compressed air. 
Then pulled the buckets & cleaned them down for piece of mind too

Cheers Chris , exactly what I was thinking, sounds like a plan .

I have a Falco with a dead motor with the parts on to swap over to the gen2

Another 4 hours on loom today,
Put a set of bars on & the switch gears to check the run & to match up to the loom
More cable threaded to the front
Shortening the whole middle of loom by 3in,
Custom branch off loom made for left & right switchgear. 
Who's idea was this 🤦🏻‍♂️

The spaghetti of wires is dissappearing though 😂

I'll only have a little more I can do before the engine will need installed to work out any more custom parts of loom or Shortening. 

I've pulled the air sensor for the gen2 out to see if I can get the gen1 there in its place, touch of modifying/fabrication & will be in the O.e spot

Another few hours cracking on today.

Installed the engine so I can finish the loom. 

Gen1 air sensor now screwed into the original gen2 spot. 
Shortened the water temp sensor wiring on right side
Wrapped the new switchgear branch off loom with the clutch switch
1/2 way through sorting the cabling run for reg/Rec relocation
Oil sensor wire run in right place. 

Little bit left on engine loom/plugs then finish off the front part

You're really cracking on with it Chris top effort. Had many issues or is it going as you planned?
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

Cheers chief,

Tbh, it was a little of the unknown but having a methodical approach with the loom & matching sections at a time was a must. 

Think the most pain in the ass was the 2 exhaust studs I had to sort. 

But all going well, the test will be hooking the battery up and checking then
