Send them on over. Might be able to cut my work effort in half.

Thanks Guy. :D

I'm ok with making just about anything.


I will have an S15 6 speed on my doorstep in a few days and have plenty of L engine gearboxes to measure. I just have zero CAD ability but can follow instructions and do what I'm told if someone is serious about this? I was wondering if it would be easier to use a automatic L series bellhousing and make a sandwich plate between that and the S15 box.

Also are those moustache bars going ahead for sale? They could be an ideal situation for those of us who aren't legally permitted to weld them for conversions....

All you have to do is swap the bell housing from the 280zx or z l series transmission to the s15 transmission. no adapters needed

No, it's a completely different gearbox to the 71C and 71B boxes. So far it's only been done by cutting and shutting bellhousings.

Anyone interested in weld up manifold stuff? This is a S13 SR20DE manifold I am building. $850.00 for a full kit.

The plenum can be used for several Nissan/Datsun applications.

SR20DE and KA24DE are the same measurements on runner spacing. I have a KA24DET head flange for this kit.

Now your playing with my emotions. How far up does it put the throttle body to front of the engine? One of the issue's i have with my excessive is it puts the throttle body right up on the radiator. I have to run a 90* coupler down which makes it tight for the intercooler plumbing on that side. Not to mention I'm running blow through maf and its on that side as well.

That's some art, Matt. Please post pictures when you've cut all the parts!
