    First KA24DE swap questions.

    you will want a 240sx engine the front sump clears the bolt in cross member. you will have to flip the steering center link to clear the oil pan. the engine mounts can be obtained from redeye on here. if you use a 240sx five speed you will need to slot the trans cross member for the longer length and shorten the drive shaft. i recommend getting a can/am box from icehouse on here not a have to but will save you alot of headaches.

    I was toying with the idea of re-purposing the fuel vapor tank in the wheel well for a surge tank beings we do not have emissions laws in NC. has anyone ever tried this? any thought or suggestions welcome

    Anyone know of a flange that bolts to the s14 exhaust manifold it's 3 bolts but a standered 2.5" flange doesn't fit one hole is offset I can cut one ear a weld it back but if I could buy a prefabricated piece that would be great
