Re: Welp.... With the price of SR's I've went to the dark side......

Yeah the RX8 first gen trans is also Aisin which is the same as the S15 Spec R 6 speed. They did change the reverse gear design slightly. At one time we had all 3 apart on the work bench. We were trying to swap the parts into the s15 housing. But it wasn't as easy as that. Due to slight differences.

Re: supercharged KA24E?

Dang I've been trying to write back but when I go on at lunch time at work the site breaks down..... anyways. Mike: Then only spec I know is that it's off an 2002 Xterra. My guess is I will get around 10PSI of boost on the KA Max. Keith: I'm putting it on a D21 I daily drive lately. So not an exciti...

supercharged KA24E?

The more projects the better in my book :) I got my kid a 96 D21 while I hunted for a cheap daily for her. I found a newish VW GTI. Now I have the D21 back. It's a beater and I just love driving it around. Don't have to care about scratches or anyone messing with it. If it had a LSD and about 80 mor...

Re: The Gobstopper car

Time sure flies when you are a guy with ADD. haha. The main problem I have is I suck at waiting for things to continue projects. If something is 2 weeks out I might just start on something else..... Wups! Years ago I sold all the electric stuff. My good buddy who is an electric car engineer said wit...

Re: VG33 (Xterra) Swap - 2022

I think in the end a Honda K will cost 2-3X what a KA would cost. Our Honda K trans adapter cost 1300 bucks but we wanted to keep the 71C transmission in our racecar. There are cheaper ones but really there aren't many good options. RX8 and BRZ are the only ones I would want to use in a 510. The res...

Re: VG33 (Xterra) Swap - 2022

The KA came in D21's till 97. We see lots down here after that it got the dual cam till 2003. I understand though. You've decided VG. I would never run those mounts you posted. the shock bushing style mounts are the worst. Makes you car vibrate so bad. Can't even have a soda in your drink holder. Th...

Re: Early Vs Late Control Arms

early sucks. they use like a shock bushing. Lots of compliance and even new ones. Late control arms is where it's at.

Plus when you google things about our Datto's you end up 2 places. Here or Ratsun. We gotta keep the info accessible! I mean so much is lost now that everyone posts on Facebook and instagram.

Looks nice! I did the DP racing brake pedal box. Worked great but I hate how he uses imperial fasteners.

Plus it's annoying when you are on a computer that's not yours and you don't want to log in to see what's going on.

Re: The Great Rolling Dyno engine rebuild

That's so cool your rig is back on the road! I want to head over to Andy's shop with you one day!! Boost is the best! I just still can't imagine you back in the 70s putting your first turbo kit on. Dang that must have been nuts!!!
