All welding on the subframe is finished up. Need to clean it up and shoot it with some paint so I can put it in the car. Once the rack is back in, we are going to tow it to my new shop up and hopefully drop the motor in and get started on the trans mount.

Will post some pics once subframe is painted

Great project and thanks for the update. Can't wait for you to fire it up. Any plans to track it? I would like to see how it would compare to G8s, Cts-vs, etc. I'm assuming the Lgt is much lighter platform than the domestics.

Definetly plan to track it once the rest of car is completed (Brakes, Suspension, etc.)

It will be a different performer than the domestics as they are a bit heavier

Legacy GT Stock: around 3300 lbs - Now: around 3420 lbs
C6 Corvette: 3350 lbs
CTS-V: 3840 lbs
'10 Camaro SS: 3860 lbs

The subframe is all painted and I got it in the car so that we can hook up the steering to tow the car to the new shop. Need to add one more piece on the passenger side mount of the rack to balance it out but it is pretty much done. Since the rack was dropped the linkage no longer reaches and you will see in the pic below how much it will need to be extended.

Dropped the mockup engine with oil pan and headers into the car. Oil pan fits beautifully and has great access. We used some premade headers and the passenger side fits great. The drivers side will need to be changed out in order to clear the steering column.

We made some more progress on the Legacy. We towed it over to the new shop and continued work on it. We got the engine and transmission in the car and with the way the subframe is designed we were able to put them inside the car as one piece. We clearanced the tunner a little bit and built the rear mount. Next step is to clearance a few more sections of the tunnel where we might have rubbing and build the shifter. You can also see the ride height with the motor and trans in the car. This is on Tein H-Tech springs

We made some progress on the rear differential yesterday. The unit that I am using is a R200 VLSD 3.69 Ratio from an Infiniti Q45. We measured and cut the mounts yesterday and tacked them in place. The diff sits very nicely in the car and the axles line up. We are now waiting on bushings and some other hardware to complete the setup. We will then add the bracing and weld it completely. This setup will run Infiini J30 axles and hubs and 300ZX Wheel Bearings. This will change the lug pattern to 5x114.3 as well. More details to follow once completed.

I like your diff setup, someone just pmed me and showed me thread about those diffs and axle setup, hub mod. Gonna see if i can do the same on my car... I've been dreading paying 1800 for drive shaft shop axles. I have a r200 from a 350z , but gonna see what how close they are when I get home from work today... Your making good progress!

Thanks. Trying to do as much a possible when we have free time. Hopefully, the diff bushings, nuts and bolts, and new bearings come in this week so we can finish welding it and assemble it.

The r200 from the 350z has 6 bolts axles so you can use 350z/g35 axles 90-96 q45 axles and 300zx TT axles with those flanges. The bolt on bearings you will require are from the 90-96 Q45

Hey guys, i'm back. All projects were put on hold for a little while as I got married in June. I also bought a DD that needed some work so I spent some time on that. We are back in the shop now and proceeding with work.

Just so I didn't come back empty handed here is a small update. The pictures below show the following.

LGT OEM Rear Brake Dust Shield
300ZX NA Bearing Housing
300ZX 5x114.3 Hub
300ZX Turbo Rear Rotor
LGT OEM Rear Caliper and Pads
18x10 5x114.3 +22 FR500 Wheels

This image shows the 300ZX Bearing housing and LGT Dust shield. The red marks are where the bolt holes had to be slightly shaved


Everything mounted up on the spindle. All 4 bolts fit after the slight shave but only 2 are in there as its just a test fit.






300ZX Rotor Mounted

Brake Caliper and Pads mounted, Only the top bolt of the caliper bracket is threaded in. Will have to modify the bottom mounting point to bring the caliper bracket out as the 300ZX rotor is about 8mm bigget than the LGT rotor





And for the grand finale, the 18x10 wheel mounted

The engine is together minus oil pan and intake. Still needs to find a few odds and ends (clutch, flywheel, and couple other things)
