Engine bay looks cool, real professional look. The bodywork looks good. Looks like he did some great work on the suspension also. Not crazy about the interior though. The dash really looks homemade and don't care for the seats.

But the seller doesn't say what car this engine came
out of.Forgive me,but I'm getting older.I don't know what
the "Codes" are for Japanese engines.
I always thought that "B" engines were Volvos.

I looked it up on Wikipedia. It's a DOHC 2.5 litre turbosupercharged inline six that was used in something called a Nissan Skyline, which is not sold in the US. It's a sporty sedan.

Oh, I forgot to write: The engine is rated at about 250 HP, if I remember correctly.

Not picking, and a beautiful job. But I think the front slotted rotors are on the wrong side. According to Brembo (and others) " the easiest way to verify correct usage is to install the rotors on the side of the vehicle that results in the end of the slot nearest the outer edge of the rotor always contacting the brake pads first.
"

So when the wheel rotates forward, the outside tip of the slot should hit the pads first to sweep the gases away. Correct?
