Also another major thing that needed to be changed were the engine mounts. The mounts of the older engine sit way at the back and the new ones a little further up towards the radiator.

For once I am thankful for the heat in Delhi as who need the heaters of the paintbooth to dry when god himself has made the entire north as a natural heater… hehehe…
Cheers for now
