    JZ to BMW ZF

    True about this forum, but take it with a grain of salt. I know a few people with a supposed impossible trans-ratio combo like me, but they're happy as a pig in slop with it, go figure. I know Ricky is happy with how his CD009 drives, but is salty about how much chopping he had to do to his tunnel. Looking at the ZF trans, they seem to have a smaller bearing plate. Fitment wise, maybe it's easier, I don't know. Gordo is quick to shit on the CD and ZF trans, but he has fondled many a tranny in his time, while I have not. He knows what trannies feel good and which ones don't, so I'm not afraid to dub him the tranny expert. He knows how trannies are geared better than any of us, so maybe go with his advice. P.S, gordo likes trannies.

    Pretty much all those ZF and Getrag transmissions are geared like this. They are all really low, like around 3.0. Even the MKIV Supra had a 3.13 paired with the Getrag V160. Eventually I'll probably swap out my ring and pinion in my MKIII LSD for a 3.5, but the CDxx9 trans that I have is going to have horrible ratios too, which Gordo has already made his disgust apparent. The 3.5 is going to get me closer, but it's still going to suck.

    Your ratios will be dicked. Already looked into it. I think those cars normally have a 3.1 or 3.2 diff in them, so you're gonna be geared really high. I'm reaching way back into my memory from two or three years ago, but that's vaguely what I remember. There was also a yolk or tailshaft adaptation problem from what I remember.

    Worked on the car this weekend. Nothing too major has occurred. Turned the motor over and got it running. Everything functions properly since I cut the wire harness at the firewall and installed the milspec connectors. There are a few problems though... AFR's are going bananas. At idle, it's around 14-15, which is good, since it's aiming for stoich. It starts to creep up pretty quickly though, and after 20 or so seconds, it starts to go above 16, so I shut the car off. When I rev up the motor, the AFR's barely drop at all. It's running lean and I'm not sure why. Boost is also kind of odd. It's running at vacuum at idle, which is good. When I rev it, boost increases to around 14 or so, but settles at a different place once I back off the throttle to idle.

    Got the JZX81 specific hub. It says it was 63mm, but it definitely looks shorter than the one you're using. Either way, I'm building a road car and I'm really anal about dumb shit like this. If my car was a track build only, I wouldn't even care.

    You mean the red two piece plastic cover thing? No way bub.

    I'm 5'9. Are you referring to the side bolsters? They have loads of clearance on both sides, nothing hits or rubs. I used Bride RO rails and they fit great.

    Test fit the seats. I'm really happy with them. The rails work great. I'm not liking how tall the WB hub is. Even though they call it a short hub, it's still really far away from my signal stocks. I have to take my hand off the steering wheel and reach back half a foot practically to get to them. A friend gave me an old Toyota wheel that I chopped up to get the center spline section out of. I had a spare WB hub laying around from when I bought my Tom's wheel that I chopped up to get the hub face off of. Now it's off to the machine shop to get it turned on a lathe. My friend said he would weld it once it came back, and then I'll be in business. It looks like hackery for the time being, but it will be fine once I get the machine work done.

    Why is everyone asking for these all of a sudden? That TimTimminy guy wanted one, then Slapstick, now this guy.

    You won't, don't worry. This is a street car, so no race harnesses will be put in that car. I saw a video of a guy that died Dale Earnhardt style because he had a race harness, no airbag and no neck brace. Race harnesses don't stretch on impact like street seatbelts do, so your body stops and your head keeps going. Keeping the stock seatbelts for sure

    I looked into that. I would have to get completely different upper and lower B pillar trim. I can't find it on YAJ, Craigslist or ebay, so this will have to work. I also don't think any JDM spec x chassis had the same color code and fuzzy faux-suede finish that my car has. Got the seats in the mail today though. Now I understand why these seats are so popular. They look fantastic, are comfortable and are pretty damn light. One item from my RHDJapan purchase is on backorder. I won't get the seat rails or steering wheel hub stuff until the beginning of April, but I don't mind. There's plenty of stuff to do in the meantime.

    That is reassuring. Some smaller details that I forgot to elaborate on... I had to chop up the core support a little bit to move the radiator forward. This made sure that the stupid transmission choice of mine would line up in the stock location. I have about an inch of clearance between the water pump pulley gear and the radiator overflow tank. I also fitted some seatbelts from a 90 corolla. They bolt into the stock location of the bullshit auto seatbelts. I know someone who can sew the stock seatbelts to the clip that plugs into the seatbelt receiver.
