72Volt system is what I'm going for now, after talking to the motor people. I might change for a smaller battery to make mounting them easier.

Anywho, had a few minutes extra today and decided to mock up the motor.

I apologize for the crappy mock up, but look it has the motor written on it!

Anywho, it looks like it will fit with some work. I'm going to have to move the power steering reservoir for sure. It seems on some subaru's it's located on top of the steering pump.

Which is what I'll be going for. Hopefully I can fit the stock one in place, if not I guess I'll have to go to the junkyard and find one that fits.

The ABS Pump/lines seems to be less of a problem. I might need to move it, I might not. Depending on how big the bracketing is for the motor. If I do have to move it, the plan is to simply copy what others have done and shove the pump into the fender:

Man is it a nice day to be working on a piece of lego.

Anywho, the engine redline is 6000 RPM, and the motor is 7500 RPM. Which means I need a 12:15 or 1:1.25 ratio?
