taken long enough but ill quicky explain the reason behind it.

Took my silvia on the student gumball when on my way home this happend!! dont buy cheap rear tyres just because your going to kill them in a event. (should of stuck with my falkens but didnt want to ruin them)









wasnt hurt at all and no one else was involved.


then found this in Mr henners shed so i bit his hand off as i loved my old rx7.

thougth screw it be interesting totransfer the sr20det engine into the fd, ino ino its not a rx7 anymore but i want to just do it for fun and then after a year i will 20b it.




the Advans off the silvia fitted perfectly on the FD! and my steering wheel!



What I will need to look at:-
New sub frame mounting points.
Customised Gear box and differential mounts.
Customised suspension.
Customised gear leaver.
Customised Prop shaft.
Roll bar/toe arm mounting points.
Customised Exhaust mid section.
Customised bonnet .

sorted the bonet i just cut away abit of the front member!

hey chengster! you goin to the meet week after next.


i needed tien nissan front coils /pillowball mounts and rear ******* so i got

two sets of both from japan for the price of half of one set lol!!!


and this *** woop

neet to get a FMIC now and rad which i smashed







subframe and steering rack connected





put the engine in to day and the bonet hits the rocker cover so i need to make a vent/buldge



will now take the engine back out after ive made the Gearbox mount!

whats left then is
  • take engine back out and clean it/ and fit new bits including a nice new rocker cover from japan not that white one
  • Connect the suspension shokcs and roll bars
  • Put engine back in plug hoses
  • then put in intercooler and Rad
  • Make a custom gear leaver
  • Send up to buffy to get it wired
  • Send to prospeed to finish exhaust
==UPDATE====
=
holes cut and smoothed ready for the top mounts, just have to paint it to tidy it up.





engine in and awaiting wiring.

Fit gear box mounts.

Fit new suspension.

===UPdate====
