Hay guys i just wanted to put a build thread up on the USA site even tho im building in the UK. I will update this every week and will try and answer any questions. If its not ok feel free for a admin to delete the thread
Anyhow im building a skyline engined locost. I recently had my Nissan Stagea RSFour (Skyline waggon with Atessa 4x4 but the 2.5 engine) written off so decided to use the engine and as many bits from it as i could but in a rwd format. Its quite cool as i dont think anyone has been mad enough to do it yet
Here are a few pics.
Will be fabbing up the gtr plenum onto the stock one to give less engine height.
The engine bay has a +5.5 stretch over the original haynes size.
Found a rb25 bellhousing that had a 200sx s14 gearbox. This saves me lots of space compared to the huge skyline box's.
2nd hand front hubs, 300miles old includes pads, discs, mushroom insert, upright, caliper and ball joints for £60!!
Removed it from the workbench to sand it down and remove lumps and bumps. Now working on the rear suspension framework.
Still loads of work to do but hay! Will keep you guys updated
