shit man motor and 5 speed manual (i have a shitbox auto on its way out right now) for like 2100 bucks.

when my car dies...we'll see. these engines are available all the time from japan and the importers.

it'd make a good fight fire with fire ricekiller...especially in my town where none of the ricers even do swaps...

Hey, now you're getting the idea of the Import Racing industry Same as B swaps in Honda's... we take the good engines that came in Japan models and swap our shitbox american counterparts

As for the Z, i'm liking the idea of a RB26DETT swap from a Skyline. Mounts pretty easy and the only mod on the engine would be relocation of the oil sump lines... other than the wiring of course

so what's the story with the exhaust plumbing on the drivers side vs. the steering box/rack/etc?

I'm not quite sure yet. I need to go over it under and over to see. Plan on e-mailing that guy from Australia to see if his car is RHD or not, and if he knows of any issues...

Re: gto parts new   Posted Wed Jan 22, 03   10:40 AM    [re: MrPeabody] 

you shoudl be able to tell from the interior photos on his site. the easiest answer is to use a rack and pinion no power assist setup so that you can avoid any extra plumbing. that and make it a good rear steer rack and you'll be fine (ie the rack is behind the subframe).

anyway, racks are a hell of a lot more low profile than a box and track rod/idler arm setup. instead of having a bunch of arms and moving parts you have one big elongated horizontal cylinder (the rack) with moving rods out either side...

that's the answer if your car doesn't already utilize the rack and pinion system.

I'm about 85% sure it is rack and pinion, and it isn't power assisted either...

welp, alrightythen, go get yourself an RB! wait, yer broke. well, save money then! ;-) it's a great idea...email that guy now before he sells the extra conversion parts he has...if you're serious about this that should be your first step.
