He does a standard chassis too and will probably tweak it if you ask nicely. You should speak to him about it before you decide.
Good point. Gather data first. I'm not even sure that the m52 lump fits without chassis mods. Some build diaries mention this so I'll get busy with the steel rule first.

MX5 would have been a better choice on reflection for a first build as it's the road most travelled at the moment
I bought the donor thinking I'd buy a GKD kit. Some of the MX5 mods look pretty impressive. I am, however, dreaming of the day I fire a big BMW lump.

Let's hope we both find the motivation and money to finish the job!
If it ain't broke, I didn't fix it.
