Zero need for the starter support with a stock engine N/A or turbo. If it was a high compression bad ass N/A engine it would be wise to add one though.The slave support is a yes with heavy springs.

YES,keep an oil cooler on it. A slave support is almost mandatory with the heavy clutch springs that you WILL want.  The busa has the classic road rash. Seems like all busa engines for sale have it. LOL!!! I recently saw one for sale with 3 miles on the odometer. Damn thing must have slid forever. It was worn clear through the covers.

It has a chrome cover as seen below.  I'll be ditching all the chrome.  LOL  Except the chrome oil cap.  I like that.

Absolutely on the oil cooler.  In fact I already have an oil cooler that I got when I bought the radiator from Rick.  It's a 9 row cooler with #10 AN fittings.  I've gotta look for the AN adapters to replace the ones that go on the block.
You mentioned a case saver.  I'm assuming that with heavier springs that hydraulic master cylinder may flex the stock cover?  I also saw a case saver for the starter side to prevent cracking on a misfire cold start?  Cheap insurance I guess.

what ever you do make sure you keep an oil cooler, stock or aftermarket as it did make a diff on mine. also .....is there a case saver on the clutch slave cyl? if you go heavier clutch ( as you will need to ) then it will need one.

DS,
I'm not sure if that will fit on the throttle bodies as it might hit the radiator. 
Bring it to LS and we will see if it may work.

Fabr,
Iv'e got some rear (backwards 8) mounts for my flags.  Here in the mitten, we have to run em this way.  It's easy to identify the cars that came from out of state as they have a flag mount in the rear/mid of the car. 

So it was really nice to deal with a local salvage yard to get my engine.  It's very nice to actually buy something like this in person.  He threw in a keyed ignition, a 2-Brothers Juice Box and said to get a hold of him when I needed any other parts as he would heavily discount them for being local.
The bike it came out of was a custom painted bike with all sorts of polished stuff on it.  More of a show bike rather than a weekend drag bike. 

Doing some initial measurements it will be a tight squeeze but it will go in.  I currently have an electronics box under my radiator that has my battery, ECU, overflow can, tip over switch, kickstand switch and some fuses.  That is a PITA to access.  So that will all be moved under the front "hood" for easy access.  I then can possibly run a taller radiator and open things up in the back a bit.




Oh, and a quick video from Saturday night.  Let me know if it's posted right for a video.

Nothing that I didn't expect or plan for.

That's quite the weldment .  Any distortion issues?
