    Gearbag is done, engine plates and rubber mounts are modded to suit the original cross member and managed to snaffle some steampipe style tube and RHS offcuts today whilst doing a quote in Geebung. Owners found it quite amusing that I jumped into the steel bin in my office gear fishing around for scrap. Went and got a bottle of argosheild, new helmet and bottle reg for the welding to start this arvo.

    While mounting the gearbox I had a squizz at the shifter arrangement on the side of the box. There is actually enough room for the shifter and rod to swing in its normal fashion from 1st up to N on the side other than what looks like a small seam towards the front of the tunnel. I reckon I can knock it flat and shifter will work as per factory but I'll see if I can snaffle a ratchet shifter for ease of skids anyway.

    Actual spend so far is around $650 bucks for the motor/box and sundry turbo gear. I reckon I can pull it in for not much more than a grand of actual coin, allowing for anything I havent thought of so far.

              We pulled the intake manifold off to find room to make engine mounts. So what is the go with the variable runners on these? They just have throttle plates on one inlet of each cyl that I assume stay closed, then open at high RPM. Do people normally bin this setup? Does it actually work well enough to keep? Can we ghetto the actuation of it so that it opens once the engine sees boost or something? (better than nothing?)

                  Yep, it is usually binned.

                    Anyway, some pics of the progress so far.

                    Have some dodge iphone pics of the engine and shit being pulled out but thats nothing exciting. Can put them up if anybody really has a hard on for it.

                    Gearbox mounted after cutting out the existing mounts tacked into the tunnel. Thought about making something fancy. Couldnt be fucked. Did this instead.


                    Fuck the Origin, there's go fast to be made


                    A12 out, CA18 sitting in place minus all unwanted accessories, loom and inlet manifold ready to get started.


                    Cut the plates and modified some random engine mounts to go onto the stock Datsun cross member.


                    Plate on the block, plate on the mount, zot together with some black steel tube. One passenger engine mount. Left enough off each side to tack on some triangulated bracing if needed.


                    Looks a bit haggard but sturdy enough for a puny CA


                    Drivers side was a little more fiddly due to a large brace running from the bellhousing under the factory mount. Gave it the finger, clearenced it with the grinder so flat plate could be used the same as the passenger side.


                    Was starting to get on a little bit at this stage so left the cutting and grinding for a bit and went to work with the dry ice and sound deadener. Bought 14kg, used less than 5 to do the whole car. Fucken One the plus side I have nearly 10kg of dry ice if anyone wants to chuck it on someones pool or toilet for lols.




                    It was about this time myshorty rocked up and it was decided fuck the nieghbours lets sort the other engine mount




                    So while he did that I took the chance to snap some of the other bits I have accumulated for the build

                    Ebay spec low mount stainless manifold


                    RB25 turbo with all lines and stainless twin dump (which has turned out to be some hektik highflowed thing that I'll take some more pics of so it can be properly identified)


                    Decent sized cooler being painted black while Az was blowing holes in the plate, swearing a bit, welding and grinding and declearing the mount structural once painted with strong paint


                    Moving along pretty quickly now


                    So this weekend will be finishing and tiding the mounts and painting them and starting on cooler and turbo mounting/dump pipe

                          How did you only use 5kg of dry ice? I used 8kg and I'm not finished

                            Cheers mate, I'm beginning to understand why people like fucking with Datsuns because they are just so easy to modify due there being nothing in them. There is an obscene amount of nothing in the front end of this car, honestly couldnt have picked a better car to do this too. Also, know anyone interested in some Sunny bits? I want my driveway cleaned up ASAP.

                            See the above. There was only about 4 sheets of sound deadener in the whole car. Nothing in the boot at all and none up under the dash. If you want some more dry ice come get it before it goes off.

                              dump pipe looks like a HKS divorced dump for the skylines (or a replica).

                                Yup, no HKS branding that I can see. Isnt going to be of any use for this project unfortunately now unless we chop it and spin it around. Farken thing points straight at the bellhousing
