VisualizeMotors said:Zach, are you keeping the USDM front on the car? That motor sure looks pretty after got done sand blasting it.
No actually that wasn't that much of an issue at all. The motor mount spacers and tranny mount spacers were fairly easy. The tranny mounts didn't line up to the original 240sx holes, so we made some adapter plate spacers that allowed us to have three bolts on each side like your suppose to. I also am taking the two driveshaft ( 300zx TT and the original 240sx one) in today to have a one piece driveshaft made.Wuss said:yup. The motor looks like it's in good condition. And nice job cleaning it, it look so purdy, especially against the flat black of your car. Looks like a big ass plastic model, the kind you buy in a hobby store, before you paint it and put it together.
Looks like maybe the tranny mount isn't lining up?
Let us know how the swap goes, issues, etc. What route are you going with the mounts and driveshaft?
dude enough of this.tradigen2 said:lucky you . being the first guy to puchase this- the last few would suffer a lot of problems oversea

Yeah that would be me that he was talking about. It wouldn't hurt to get some more help, so if you want you are more than welcome to.........or if you just want to come down and check it out.Quick240 said:Hey DET, I don't check these boards often, so I just recently found this thread. It looks like you have a good portion of your swap already done, but if you need an extra set of hands, give me a call 578-3785.
I met Tony a few months back when I was up at HP getting my bov flange welded to my hotpipe and he told me about the two rb25 swaps you guys were going to be doing (I'm assuming he was talking about you). I've never done any work with RBs but I swapped my SR successfully from start to finish on my own (along with the usual goodies: intake, exhaust, fmic, radiator, fans, etc) so I do have a little knowledge.
