b18c new swap, new problems

i just had a jdm b18c put into a '99 cx. i picked up the car thursday. today i noticed that during a slow turn i could hear a grinding/rubbing sound. it happened in either direction.

i will call the shop monday and i am sure they will fix the issue but i thought maybe someone had an idea.

i did notice some old oil laying in a fresh pool under the car. i don't thing it was mine though. it wasn't much. i watched for more and none appeared.

any ideas?

Probably the heatshields scraping.

I still don't know why these 'mechanics' don't road test cars after engine swaps or work being done. Sloppy work.
