I am afraid that I cant help you with the issue you have specifically with the engine, however I would suggest that you can try calling them, they cant ignore you if your on the other end of the phone.
I am sure that they can supply the exhaust seperately -at a cost obviously....
I had exactly the smae thing with my scooped bonnet, they supplied it with a big rectangular tank that even at the time when they gave it to me I said that I thought it wouldnt fit under the bonnet.
I am not sure what is going on with the USA distributor, he started a build diary then suddenly nothing, I even tried emailing him to see what happened to the build but never got a reply so I am guessing he is no longer the USA distributor.
To be honest my build was riddled with things that needed redoing or required swapping broken parts for good or just incorrect parts, the big difference was that I am in the UK and can easily get in the car on a weekend and go and get the right bits from them (even though it was a 600mile round trip), its a bit more difficult for you.
As for engine mount holes being that far out is not good and I can see why it doesnt settle with you.
Good luck with rest of the build and maybe someone can suggest a way of getting the engine in without having to cut and re-weld.

According to the Zcars website it lists the exhaust and silencer as part of the bike engined kit road or race, so according to there own brochure you should have had a full exhaust system supplied.
The front mounts of the engine I believe are rubber mounted and a bit of brute force should get them lined up, they change the design quite frequently so I'm not sure what you have but is it possible to drill out the rear mounts for a little more give. Cutting off engine mounts and rewelding can't be right.
I would contact Chris directly at ZCars UK, they are usually very good at answering emails, failing that telephone them.

This is the first I have heard about this you should have had an exhaust system with your kit without all the information I don't know why you didn't get one. regarding your RHD kit we can send you the rhd dash bars to swap everything over drop me an email or call and I will get this sorted

Well you are lucky then. Where you from? Steve was emailing me back just fine and then they just stopped. My phone isn't set up to call out of the US. So I had to email
I'm from Central Oregon, Crooked River Ranch, just north of Bend.

ok for update. I got a sprocket that i needed, and offered to pay shipping on rest of stuff and havent heard back on anything. If you live in the states dont bother buying this kit. I am gonna half to build a custom exhaust now when it was suppose to come with the kit. and i am gonna half to make it the kit rhd drive too. because i ordered it in that that and got lhd. Its not steves fault i am sure i ordered it from brian in the states and that guy pretty much left the face of the earth,
Is Brian in the states an official distributer of Z Cars in the states, or was he importing them and then adding a slice of profit. If Brian is an official distributer then contact Chris Allanson direct, I wouldn't speak to anyone else, this assumes you have exhausted all avenues trying to contact Brian first
