How did u seal the transmission where front axles use to be?
And another thing y did u go to gc knuckes? If you leave front half part of the axle in the knuckle wouldn't that enable you to still have ABS will this work? that's what i plan on doing next week. Also is it worth taking the trans apart and gutting the front diff not sure if you've done this or not.

I don't know about the op but when I did mine I used some rubber expansion plugs to seal the holes in the trans. I used the ones that expand as you tighten them. I believe the op went with go knuckles to get more angle. I've been meaning to ask him why he didn't just redrill the stock knuckles..
You can use the stock stub axles with the abs tone ring and keep abs. As for the front diff. I split my case and took it out but it's not something you need to do.

I left the front diff and everything in my trans because I was worried about oiling the inputshaft bearings and seals. My trans is an early 04 so it has the stubs so I didn't need to seal the front axles. I used gc knuckles because the bearing is smaller and it has no abs casting giving me more room on the steering arm to redrill. Almost 4 years and its held up great even in pro am with sticky rear tires and 60-70mph clutch kicks. Oh and I didn't keep abs because it freaks out with drifting. Left foot braking and e braking made it engage and do all sorts of weird stuff. So I got rid of it.

Good to know on the gc knuckles. i didnt even think about the casting haha. Another question, when using the gc knuckles how did you keep your 5x114.3 setup?

*nvm you car is 5x100 i think. anyway, how did you keep the brembos?

I'm willing to bet you'll go another three years before you even have to start thinking about it.

There are bell housing adapters to mount a Toyota W-58 or R-154 trans to EJ's. It's made by Bill's Auto Fab.

Russel Walker (McRusselpants) started messing with using the 350z trans on his build, but abandoned that and went STI trans.

Before that I believe Mike Ranlet (www.mranlet.com) did make an adapter to mate the 350z trans on an EJ, but I'm not sure of what happened to the project either.
