Mark, will do.

 

I'll definitely need an upper dash, cluster surround, probably a dash bar, and some other stock shit, but once i take delivery of the car tomorrow and start ripping into it I can get you a list.

i'm excited for this project. mostly because i want to see that melted down FA20. i love the chassis, but despise that boxer bullshit.

Jz swap. I think it has good potential. Fair bit of clean up and work but if you're using it as a shell it could be affordable. Weird jzxp members saying it's a mistake but I guess then again some members probably have trouble turning a wrench like what's his name.

Just won a massive 4.5" thick fluidyne radiator on eBay. Rad has to go in the trunk for this to work.

check out some of the other JZ-FRS swaps. either the radiator's going in the trunk or the intercooler will, and AWIC sucks. JZ is too damn long for the bay and if I cut into the firewall to set the engine back a foot it's a PITA first of all and second say goodbye to ever drifting at any proam events that use FD rules

Why can't you just figure shit out instead of copying someone else? The entire project is gonna be fabrication city, and you don't seem to be dumb, so, uh, make it happen.
