    Would a zb commodore 2.0T or even the v6 go into a JH Cruze in a relatively easy fashion or would it be a full custom fabrication + wiring canbus nightmare?

      Cheers for the advice guys, tb48 ti looks like the go, factory lockers and a comfy (for nissan) looking interior, and can be had for $12ish k with average km. Which is better then the other option, 100 series v8 gxl and up, which are either high as fuck ks or just to expensive.

        Lx470s can be had cheap though, and are generally better looked after.

            How do i safely clean the shmutz from a sensor? This is the crank case pressure sensor from a KTM 2 stroke TPI. A hose is connected to the barb, the other end of which to the crank case as part of the oil/fuel injection system. Naturally it chokes up with 2 stroke shmutz - i assume inside is delicate and i shouldn't just blast it with brake cleaner. ID is 2mm and concerned using something physical will just poke the grot further in?

                Look up electrical cleaner. Is better than brake cleaner.

                  On this note, for those who want electrical/contact cleaner in bulk, check out formsolve 64. Is good for this type of shit.

                    Carby blown motors... how shit are they to tune ?

                    Motor is LS3 with a 6/71 blower shop on top, looks to be about 20% under.

                        I didn't think they were any worse than a n/a one, so long as the carby was the right type/size ... so nowhere near as much tuneabiity as EFI, but it should still allow reasonable driveability & good max power (yet as thirsty as fuck).
                        Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                          They are still a thing it seems.

                              I meant I thought people would tune suck through carbys about as often/well as normal carbys, which is see if it runs, look at the plugs, off you go, as far as i know (which isn't very far) it shouldn't be much different to tune either. One would think it would make sense to use port fuel injection, but I guess it depends on the aesthetic being gone for, wouldn't be impossible to make it look kinda sorta like mechanical injection though which could be cool, not like the LS has a distributor so it's not going to look like an old motor anyway.

                                Cool so basically the same as a greasy old 302 clevo then.

                                Here's how the engine currently sits (vehicle and driveline was being sold seperately).
