I used to import the ones that fit our cars, but  decided it really wasn't worth the trouble trying to sell to the broke-ass Cressida club....

 

LS1 in a Datsun......

May the ghost of Mr. K haunt you till the end of time.

 

By the way, have any forged high compression L-series pistons laying around ?

I just Sold my last l28 motor I had it was forged high comp 10k miles on it let it go stupid cheap 1k bucks

 

I work in R&D for Nissan its not the most loved car here but people do understand it.

Gordo, isnt that the truth. I imported 4 sets of the JDM lights that fit the mx83 and I got enough shit about the price that I said fuck the community. I was only selling them for $40 profit..
Fwiw Gerald, I havent seen a set in over a year in the same configuration as mine. They are out there Im sure, but you really gotta look and check different JDM websites daily.

Well this weekend was a labor of love for sure working in the AZ heat at 105 degrees.

I was able to install the clutch pedal and my motor.

 

The motor and to go in two times as I had the incorrect extension on the shifter the first time but its better now.

I still need to cut the brake pedal and order rubber pads for the pedals

Motor went in very nice with a little help from my wife to align the mount bracket.

I still need to align the trans mount and tighten up the engine mounts but this is much better than before.

What did you use to plug the extra ports on your upper water pipe? Looks like a hex head of sorts.

Jordan, I told him the same thing when he posted on Facebook. I think it's because his engine brackets are fixed as opposed to the XM ones.

That pipe is going to nothing at the moment it will go to the heater core switching valve.

I dont have the motor mounts or trans mount tight or adjusted at this time.   I hope it will be better after adjustments today.

Hopefully it works out.  I know if you get it in the right position you can easily utilize the stock auto trans xmember to save yourself some trouble

For the brake pedal, get a mkiii brake arm. Fits like it's stock and looks 100x better than a cut auto pedal. All you have to do is flip the tab that hits the brake light button to the other side.

My clutch pedal is a bit offset to the left in my new chassis, but you get the idea.
