Did some more work on the car. Radiator is in and hood still closes ok. Power steering cooler will go into right side headlight hole and engine oil cooler will go into the left one I reckon. The pre-fit for the engine cooler looks a little less straight forward because of its size, but nothing an angle grinder won't fix!

nice build id skip trying that R180 and go full on R200 you prob could find some nissan axles that will work. Ive seen that LS1 swapped WRX it was pretty straight forward they even used the stock gauges etc.

Agree totally. I have a long nose R200 diff and 3x2 axle set ready to go. The trick is how to get the axles into the hubs, as the R200 axles are bigger and won't just slide in.

Went to see my CV joint man last week to see what options I have. Just looking the Nissan axles over, he does not think that I can just replace the hub end with R180 units and all good. I need to get a set of R200 hubs and see if I can do something with that.

Other option that I am considering is to cut, key, weld and sleeve the R180 hub end onto the R200 axles. Seems pretty drastic to me. Anyone tried anything like that?

Which Nissan axles exactly? I have looked at 3x2 and 5x1's with no straight swap in.

Awesome I love this. My first car I built was a 240sx with a LS1. Used a mix of the Hinson kit and sikke plus some custom work to get it in. It really is an incredible powertrain option. Got into the military and quickly sold it tho... I'm in this is dream build

He'll yeah! I am working on the fuel system at the moment but still, every now and again, I will just lift the hood and have a look. HOLY COW I JUST CANT WAIT TO RUN IT!

Then will be the exhaust. When I do that, I will get some pics of the underside so you guys can see how the box etc looks from there...

Just a quick progress report. Exhaust system is in. Fuel system is in progress...



Outlet. Simple and hopefully will not snag the trailer...

I plan to use LED type lights on this car. My bigger issue is the air intake. I don't know if an over radiator unit will fit but that's my ideal solution. Next is a pod somewhere. Maybe I can put the inter cooler scoop to better use?

Anyone have any thoughts on this issue?

Using the ic scoop would be badass man! I'm sure you could put some kind of mesh screen or something to protect it
