Awesome! Have you considered doing an R200 rear diff? They come in quite a few RWD Nissans, most commonly the 240sx. Pretty strong diffs! That's what I'm putting in mine and there are a few guys on here that have done that same!

Fun project. Any plans to duct and intake or just leaving open TB and chopped hood?
It's an lq4. I just got the factory lid and stuff off an f-body car. Waiting to see how that fits. It will have a cowl hood for sure.

I would go with a straight axle like a ford 9in before that. Seems easier. Then again I could be wrong. Getting the axles made is what concerns me.

I got some wiring done this weekend. I can turn the engine over with the key. I also got the power steering lines made. A few steps closer.

Nice build. Did you by chance give thought to doing this in a GC body before the GD? Could have shaved off about 700 lbs.

I already had the car. When I blew the ej, I decided this. It has no problem pulling the weight it has. I drove it last night and damn. I fouled some plugs do to not have a filter on it. I'm putting one on it tmrw. Im going to have to sell it though. As bad as I hate it but thats the way it goes. It's nice but I'm moving to philly in about 3 months and I've got to get rid of this payment to buy a new vehichle. That new vehichle is my friends 05 STI.

Whats up man. It'll be up 840 in a month if it doesnt sell. I've got a mustang and a camaro that I have to kill. They always beat the ej but not this. My car is built to put 450hp and 480tq to the wheels through an auto. It want see the track because it want hook so no point. but from a 30ish roll it'll hit 100 fast. Whats your name. Do I know you?

I respect that. The hood needs a 28 inch wide 3 in cowl and it will clear. I had one but it got misplaced when I switched jobs. NOONE seen where it went. Anyways. You may know micheal potts???? The top speed, if my calculations are right, will be 150 at 6000 rpm. But it will get there fast as heck.
