I bit of an update.... the mounts are out and of course now sold out. The final version only allows use of the Accord or TSX transmission (or outer case to be exact). You CAN use the RSX case but not without mods. This was necessary to get the engine up high enough off the ground and far back enough to make Brain happy enough to put his name on them.

This works out pretty well. Luckily enough, I bought an Accord transmission from the local pull-a-part last year. The gearing should put me ~3300rpm at 75mph. Should be better for economy than ~3700rpm from the EP3 trans or ~4000rpm from my K20Z1 trans.

He talks about the very combo at about 20min mark
