    Agreed! not too sure about the weight difference between the 5m-ge and 2j, or the stock auto and the th400. Will report back once it's done though.

    It's just a weekender really so not that often. From memory the diff ratio in this is 4.1:1. I wanted to find one from a RA65 or RT142 as they are 3.58ish which would be a lot better.

      I ran a 12.3 with 330 rwhp in a heavier MX83 1JZ cressida, so you should be in the 11's for sure.

        I ran a 12.3 with 440 rwhp in a lighter MA61 Supra. I reckon the difference there would be the rear suspension setup. The semi trailing arm IRS in the MA61 and MX73 is woeful for getting off the line.

        Of course it could just be that I suck at driving.

          Autos and motors will be similar, add some weight for cooler and turbskies

            Sims metal weighbridge,



            1460kgs without driver.

            Last few pics;











            Little video on the transbrake, no more after 2600 rpm.



            Trans temp came down straight away with some light driving.

              1460 is more like what I'd expect. Still makes for an excellent power to weight ratio!

              Engine bay is looking mint.

                    yeah, but my turbo is bigger ?

                    I really need to sort out that torque converter.

                            New torque converter, cams, springs, re-tune, e85, see what breaks.

                            Went to a diff conversion place today so pending out come of costs, I *might* put the running gear into something else.

                                Put an order in for a Hughes Pro SSX 9.5" bolt together converter, it should really transform the car so excited to see how it goes with it in.

                                They're saying it should get me to the high 3,000 to 4,000 RPM range on the transbrake and will look at getting a dump valve kit that should give an extra 300-600rpm stall speed on the brake.

                                I want to swap everything out of the stock th400 case and put it inside my Reid case so will look at upgrading a couple of other parts inside the transmission while its apart.

                                This is also of interest to me, I found someone that's put a R200 diff in one that looks quite neat, will need to jig it all up before hand though which will take a heap of time. Pretty cool though
