Great project! I have a Merc SC ready for the MX5 engine. I did figure out how to drive the electronic bypass from a signal generator hooked to a vac sensor, but in the end like a good few others decided that the Mini Vac driven one would be easier.

Just one observation is that a lot of your earlier welds and some of the later ones look "cold" from the pics. Also as if you have not cleaned back to bare metal. Did you hammer test some of them? MIG can be a bit deceptive in that it looks great but if it has not penetrated it might as well be Pritt stick. - The ones holding the gearbox on look good though! You can get a much more experienced opinion if you post samples on the very friendly MIG welding forum.

Miskit, no problem with the welds as most of them have had atleast 2 passes in structural areas.

They are thick and messy but strong mate.
