    I’ve done a lot of research into doing rwd 2GR. Absolute pain in the ass. Can swap onto a small box that won’t handle the torque and no room for starter as the block design means the starter has to be on the Gbox side. or a Lexus sc350 2GR with auto and custom bellhousing to manual box, $$$ 1GR with R box is the go, but it’s a pleb commercial vehicle motor compared to a Nissan 35. 2GR bellhousing pattern is different to the Lexus 2GR and 1GR so that’s a no go. ford or Nissan for sure

    Yeah after posting this I found a guy put a jag one into an mx5 in the uk and a company that’s sells conversion parts for it. Inc carbon intakes youtube “car throttle mx5” and it’ll turn up and yeah imagine 2.5L Nissan motors are pretty reasonable price to

    Theres ford Duratech v6 guys put in all sorts, so might find bellhousing and other conv parts pretty easy. Can’t imagine they would be a super common swap in NZ so might get reasonable pricing on them

    I didn’t even get mine running, failed to connect. Got the code on it but never got a connection again. spoke to a couple people, they said the earlier boards with just two layers are far better. yeah man I drive by sometimes and keep saying to my self to flick you a message. is the one with roof racks your sisters?

    I had the same thing with the ms i built, multi layer boards are garbage. nice to see you still have it after all these years nice wheels.

    Made some good progress today. stripped more. Ended up getting rid of the plastic covers on the rear of the head altogether. this meant getting rid of the connector block with comb style links. throttle position changing to the front of the engine, pretty much all air sensors/solenoids have to move. this has left the injectors far to long, witch isn’t an issue as I’ve got to change the plugs away, so I’ll cut it all back and reuse the factory plastics as cable support. need to change the plugs as Honda do their own style of injectors. Msel have Bosch 730’s that are batch matched for some of the best pricing I could find. I’ll need extending cups due to the odd length as well and use ev6 ls2 plugs. added a 5v core from the ecu to the sender location, but I’ll leave it unwrapped until I see where boost solenoid and IAT sensors are going. I use bootlace crimps with the coloured feral cut off. Coppers twisted together to the same thickness as the insulation then the crimp hangs over and gets crimpped down onto the insulation as well, for strength and help against metal fatigue on the strands. larger ones that aren’t in line are just twist, crimp with longer crimps. Heat shrink, fold the end over, and head shrink again to seal it off from liquids.

    Started sorting out the loom and removing things not needed. they run two ECT sensors, one being in the bottom the the rad also two speed sensors off the gearbox. theres a plastic casing that sits on the back of the head witch houses a collection 0v, 12v perm,12v ecu and 5v. although the casing is on the back the head I might be able to rework it to the back of the intake. Try hide it and utilise as much factory loom as possible. ive split the E-throttle into a seperate loom altogether. want to swap out the oil sender for a press sensor to get proper reading, guys normally T off for the turbo at this point but would think that leads to inaccurate readings should the turbo flow a lot of oil?? ill post some photos when I’ve started adding wiring. Need to cut and reweld my manifold adapter too so the turbo sits closer and lower but that will haft to wait till I’ve finished moving
