  1. Ka24 and sr20 are your best options. Basically any motor swap will require trans with it, especially if you plan to increase power. These are both 4 cylinder engines that can make good power on turbos. Also there are members here who sell nearly all the parts to make the swap go quickly and easily. From there vg30/33 or vq35 would be the next best options. V6s with good power. Vq engines take to modding pretty well. Anything bigger requires cutting and substantially more fabrication.
  2. Sounds an awful lot like wussing out...😁👍 I'm a little sad it's not "statutory grape 2 - the new vintage", but since I'm broke and spend $0 on cars right now, i have no room to speak. Keep it up guys. Always entertaining
  3. Red and yellow and pink and green Purple and orangle bluuuueeee I can sing a rainbow Sing a rainbow Sing a rainbow toooooooo
  4. I've never wired something from scratch. Just modified stock harnesses for other uses. Scratch wiring is hardcore. But you two tend to be pretty hardcore.
  5. There is nothing wrong with using wd40 in the cylinders. The worst thing it will do is cause some smoke. They do make special lubricants for winterizing engines that are specific to putting in cylinder bores. You could find that if it really matters to you.
  6. I'm very pro this whole build. Nicely done.
  7. O2 is not on that list if running efi and turbo. Pretty much all the other emissions stuff can be deleted without affecting overall engine performance.
  8. Can you just make them adjustable length? Then they can be fine tuned in place and changed in the future if you change your setup.
  9. Hahahahaha you are totally right! I just picked that one at random but that is pretty clever
  10. You can always do this sort of shifter relocation deal. Loads of examples on the interwebs.
  11. I'm currently building a house. 95% of everything we own is currently inside one of these containers on my property. My datsuns are stored at various families houses. Haven't turned a wrench for fun in months. It certainly blows. I have been considering buying another and building a roof between them as well. I guess we will see what happens.
  12. That is simply the short 720 console. It came in any 720 with the short trans, so its easily found in most 4x4.
  13. Drill a hole down through the center then run a metal rod through it. Weld a new nut to the bottom of the rod and mount it with that.

    18 inch Titan rims

    Visually Titan steelies are a nice looking Rim. But without knowing the offset it's hard to tell you if you will have any issues actually mounting them. It's quite possible you will want or need spacers to get the look you want. As for tires you'll need to decide what size sidewall you want to go with what with you need et cetera but regardless I've been pretty happy with the Coopers that I've been running on both of my vehicles for the last year. Roto Grip seems very good for daily driving even in the rain and the price was pretty reasonable getting them from Amazon
