yeah they have gay orgys with eachother every day
Is that what happens when you own an gemini? If that's so I think I stay right away from gemini's.
I went to the auto speed site, that 2.6L gemini is mad(there was a little info about fittting it e.g firewall mod)
hahhhaahaget a gemini and be just like us.
na dude go to hotgemini.com and go to the workshop article and theres one on this engine transplant. it tells ya every single thing there is to know

i was the one who put that thing on hot gemini
i dont know how you will go with height
cuz i had to take the stock air fillter ect off and fit a thin one
as it hit the bonnet
i might be doing this again with the 2.6 motor with a supercharger
it is a very good upgrade good for burnouts
just do it
i put the rodeo motor in only cuz i saw one in that HP hero gemini
didnt know if any custom work was needed.
it was well worth it
so how much all up did it cost ya. im thinking of doing that conversion
there is a Gemi in Canberra with a rodeo turbo setup motor in it in canberra & it runs 11's
05-08-02, 08:53 PM
it cost me about $600
$500 for motor and a gemini 5spd
i just needed to weld a mount on the engine for the clutch cable
no longer have that car
it was the 4zd1 (carbie 2.3 lt) not the 4ze1 (injected 2.6lt)
power and tourqe is pritty close

is that "what eles is a 4zd1 good for?" (aka dusten?)
a 4zd1 could also be used to get u from a to b (doing a huge burnout along the way)
Is the gemini gearbox any good, or should I change to another gearbox?
":) :D :cool: :rolleyes: :p BUMP:) :D :cool: ;) :rolleyes: "
What size turbo would be suitable to fit to the 2.6L?
gemi box would be all sweet and i dont know about turbos
What about diffs should stay with the orignal diff or change to something else?
could you sugest an alternative?
u can keep it the standard if u want but if ya wanna upgrade then i would go wit a piazza. they bolt straight in and theres a guy in brizzy he`s selling it for $700 and its the full lsd disc brake piazza turbo rear end with the open driveline requiring a crossmember to mount upper links ( doesnt have a torque tube )
got to hotgemini.com for more details
:) :D :cool: ;) :p SWEET!
can a auto box be mounted behind the 2.6???
U can still use the standard gem diff my mate has a gemini with 322hp at the rear wheels with a standard gem diff just need to find stonger axels!!!!!
yeah auto box goes straight on
which auto box goes straight on... the standard gemini auto???
yeah the standard box. ive got one here if u want one $30 fully complete, including pedals, console and shifter and the complete box.

I don't know if I am the one that you are talking about but I have a complete Piazza rear end. It is the LSD rear with vented disks. I am pretty sure that I posted pics acouple of months ago. I am still over seas at the moment but I will be back in about a month or so.
