    ok I've heard about the 13's for 1300, turns out I'm basically doing this anyways! so I've joined up AGAIN since i totally forget my old username haha.

    its a 1988 MX73 cressida glxi rolling shell, its actually quite clean inside and out, silver with god awful burgundy interior haha




    and this driveline haha.


    so I'm HOPING to keep this under 1300 and will run a 13..

    cost so far-

    car- $250
    driveline- $250
    J3 chip- $215
    shiftkit- $20
    extractors- $200

    total 935 so far. 365 to go haha

          Ps lot of work for little gain (weight wise)

          Pps conversions are a bitch to get under the budget

              As an example of this, your tailshaft will probably cost 3-400 to get done

                weight wise I'm saving at least 200 kg straight up, and easily another 100 to possibly 150 kg in simple weight reduction, so should weigh 1200- 1250 when done, also they have 4.11's standard so that will help alot

                funnily enough it has a front sump , and accessories are all in the same spot at the 5m, so basically slot it in and get a tailshaft made.

                    Mx73: 1455kg
                    Ef falcon: 1545kg
                    and adding a 4.o to a '73 will probably bring the '73's weight up to near 1500

                    Dont get me wrong, love the oddball conversion!

                          haha yeah should be lots of fun regardless! I'll weigh this when I've done the weight reduction, there doesnt seem to be any difinitive answer to the weights, but i mostly see around 1350 so I'll base it on that for now and then weigh it when its done, falcon motor and trans weighs 70kg more at worst.

                          motor comes out of the wreck today!

                            took the motor out with craig cant see there being too much extra weight in the driveline, its not that much bigger, plus the torque will make up for it
