My engine was sitting on a 10 degree angle per the setup in the Eclipse. Yours seems to be more flat and too low. Can you get an angle reading off a flat spot on the valve cover?

The timing belt mount is centered and that prevents any more angle either way.

Is the tbelt stock or custom? From the Eclipse or another car?

Your right it does look way too low. Do you have poly mounts anywhere on the car yet?

I believe it's an optical illusion. Look at the mount bolt up points and compare them, they look the same in each picture.

That looks 150% better than your old exhaust setup bro.

How do you have so much space between the crossmember and the transmission? Maybe it's just an illusion since yours is more zoomed in.
I did modify my 1.6 transmission mount to fit the stepped bolt pattern, and I may have redrilled the bolt hole on the frame side (I don't recall off hand) but the other 1.6 mounts are in stock form for the most part.

I do think it's mostly camera angles.

Thanks, I like it too. I think it's probably 40 pounds lighter than the old crap also.

Love that exhaust also. Black and dual tip FTW

I like how you did your rear struts. I did the exact same thing. But yours is probably a little nicer. I kept my exhaust on the drivers side, was a lot easier to do. Looks like you had to accomodate a fancy rear bumper.

That sweet exhaust, already turned not so sweet.

But I found an Ebay store who sells T409 stainless bends for less than half of what I cold buy mild steel for locally.

Two of these $38 beauties did the whole system.

I just ordered a 2.25"/90 degree bend for $15 to redo my tailpipes, and after that I shouldn't have to do the exhaust again.

EDIT: One more
