Throttle bodies and engine mounts

My first issue...all be it minor.

I pushed it a little on the inlet length and to be honest, with the filter base plate in situ, they 'ain't gonna fit'!.

Plan B.....reduce trumpet length, remove base plate and re-think the filter situation....Thank you RamAir who do a twin filter that doesn't require a base plate, is designed for the gsxr throttle bodies AND 1/3 of the price of the pipercross...Sounds too good to be true.....ordered today, and we will see...Anyway, the manifold fitted perfectly :-) - Thanks Dad for milling the flange flat.

As you can see, not much room...but it will squeeze in.

On to the rear engine mount....I love this...the engine mount is made form the gear linkage stay (sits along side the gear linkage in the puma and is bushed. It's a simple case of cutting the end off, and crushing the tube..job done, one rear engine mount.
Finally, rather put a pin through the made up gearlinkage, I did the sensible thing and had it play, and the shift now feels fantastic.
