  2. Pretty good build thread here with lots of S30 and other JDM goodness. https://zilvia.net/f/showthread.php?t=654450 Guy has deep pockets but has built some fantastic cars including one of my favorites: https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?1904279-E39-touring-LS-swap-project Its such a pity that good build threads are dying off and people using social media instead.....just doesn't work for me.

    Huw, post up a photo
  4. We've got a IS350 and the fob has an emergency key hidden in the side.
  5. Article just popped up on my old Cortina which I sold to Geoff Patton. He was good mates with Peter Ridgeway who built the engine you see in the article other than that it was run the way I sold it too him. https://www.whichcar.com.au/features/blast-from-the-past-animal-acts?fbclid=IwAR3lEoQD2KK1FYVcpG1lm178iuscsLOpXIJ06Fh6bvI1xLn2s9I2z2GPCf4
  6. I had the opposite, rear bar was fine but the front needed reshaping
  7. So as much as Covid-19 sucks it means I can't travel for work so riding pretty much every day and the fitness level is getting back to where I was 3 years ago. That's the good. The bad is that all the Spring classics are cancelled and I cant see TDF happening irrespective of what the organizers are saying . Everyone seems to be out exercising which is a good thing. Dandenong's were full of bikes today, easily more bikes than cars! How is everyone going, getting some good riding in?
  8. That's a popular alternative for engines that have restricted oil flow from the pickup....aka Holden red sixes...ask my brother how he knows
  9. Was the price just for engineering cert or to do the actual swap? How much did they quote?
  10. Looks good. I reckon that's where the market is for a car like that so will be good to see if it sells.
  11. If you can’t lower the nose of the diff or raise the rear anymore then as you point out the only option is to change the gearbox angle. Are you using the standard diff cross member and mount or an RT type diff mount? May be easier to modify this if so. Dropping the gearbox mount will require some decent spacers to get 2 degrees so you may want to look at spacing the engine mounts to raise the nose of the engine as well if you have room?
  12. If it’s shredding bearings then I would suspect angles are the culprit. Ideally gearbox and diff need to be at the same angle or at least close. The actual angle isn’t really important (no more than 5 preferably) as long as they are the same. Assume it is a conventional tail shaft with slip joint in the gearbox or is the slip joint in the shaft itself?
  13. Not sure why but this does it for me!
