Since our last update the builder has continued working on the full tube frame, suspension, and plumbing for the two Garrett GTX-3076 turbochargers. If you haven’t been following this project, the builder took two Toyota inline-six engines and put them together to make a V12. There is a long history of manufactures building V12s this way and it is essentially the same thing Toyota did when they built their 5.0 L 1GZ-FE.
Update 4-7-2015: We have received two more photos which we have posted below.

How did you bolt up a transaxle on that engine configuration?
i would LOVE to see more updates of this awesome project… maybe even a video of it running…. 😉
I am excited to see the progress as well. I will continue to write updates.
All that crazy fab work, and he’s using a DEDION REAR?!?!?! The WTF factor there is massive. Especially after seeing the inboard-shock front double-wishbone.
And the block, looks like he cut out the main bearing sections and welded them into a sheet box section? It looks like a 120-degree setup, which is cool (the “other” natural block angle from the 60-degree blocks used by OEMs).
