Default Sirio + NT1

Hi, just wanted to know is there any problem with fitting Sirio xxxv or Sirio Nemesis into NT1? I have heard that in the past there was kind of problem and it needs special engine mounts. Is that true? Or now Sirio have solved that problem..?

For the stock engine mounts I needed to dremel off some material from the engine block. Otherwise the block is too wide to sit nicely and you won't get proper gear mesh.

currently i am running the S12XXXVUS in the 2010spec car and building the 2011 spec........

i have had no issues with the 2010 car with the engine fitament.....it is a little tighter fit than the RB,Picco,and OS stuff though........Still no gear mess issues.....

Let you know about the 2011 spec soon......

gotta love them SIRIO'S
