    Wow. Looks great! I read in an option mag a while back of a 800hp drag Levin that was SR powered. It was crazy. Your 5th pic down reminded me of it b/c the guy had a custom bumper that didnt really hide the bigass intercooler.

    Keep us on the update and I have to say thats pretty rad.

    Quik edit: BTW you should really change the project name to "Project Rad-Ass"
    aka Johnny_Engrish/Wildcat86
    aka THE REAL CUSCO 86..damn biters

    Coool! that will be a great project.
    I got a Box of smarties from PDM once too, they are great.

    So to get clearance you needed to cut the core support? Is that easy to re-build?

    That looks like a whiteline lateral bar,at least looks like the one I just stuck on my car

    Looks good Steve,what are you running for a rear end to handle the power level?.

    -I've got an 81 celica GTS, LSD equipped, Disc rear axle complete to go under it, should handle the power pretty good.

    -I cut the rad support to make it easier to pull the motor in and out while fabricating due to the insanely long SR transmission, have to have the engine almost vertical to put the engine in with the transmission attached, wasnt really necessary because I later found its much easier to just drop the complete subframe out (12bolts and 4 nuts and its on the floor)

    -Its a whiteline panhard bar that I ordered along with a ton of other stuff from PDM, those guys rock

    I dont refer to them as problems, more like obstacles or annoying things :-) A person can put any engine in any car if they have enough money, time, and skill :-)

    that being said there is gonna be difficulties and head scratching when it's gonna be the first car like it in canada and one of only a very small few in north america

    Good job so far Steve! Did you have to bang the firewall out much? How easy was the tranny mount to hook up? DETAILS!!! I'm very interested in this project for the easy power potential of the SR. I don't care how impure it is to most.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    The pics don't come close to giving this car justice. You really have to be their to truly apprecitate this swap.

    The firewall had to be banged a bit but only near the tranny tunel. Yes it is a tight fit but there is definatley enough room to work on it.

    The tranny mounts haven't been worked out as the floor still has to be cut out for the shifter to fit. I am sure steve will keep you updated as the project progress'.

    What is your intended use for the car Steve,any motorsports events or simply a street terror?.I could care less if the engine is the same make as the chassis,whatever makes the car the things you want it too is fine with me.The car looks awesome,look forward to following your build.
    I'm personally afraid of breaking my tranny befroe the rear gear,btw any ideas on just how tough the gts rear is?with the gze tq and little sticky 13" race rubber on I hope it lives for awhile.

    Well the tranny being used is the s13 trans. no problems there. The rear diff is said to become pretty well useless at anything over 150 ft lbs. of torque.

    The SR20 came in S13, S14, S15 chassis cars (silvias and 180sx's), the pulsar or sunny GTi-R the bluebird (awd stanza). We never got a turbo varient but we did get a NA SR20 in the nissan NX2000. I believe it was a 91-93 model car and the 91-? sentra SERs.

    you guys have something against rad supports don't you

    And damn, you sure have gotten your money out of those wheels Steve, talk about getting around

    As for the sr20 in a toy, its simply a matter of economics. If you've followed Steves swaps, you'd know hes a huge fan of 3sgtes, but this is no midengined car. The sad truth is toyota has no simple and cheap way to get a good turbo 4 into a rwd car. A rwd turbo sr20 can be had for something like a third of what it would cost to get a 3sgte in there. I'm all for keeping it in the family, but toyota has been sleeping at the wheel for the last 15 years or so as far as it comes to turbo rwd 4bangers.

    He's using the supra axle w/lsd in the back. I'm sure if you keep the diff maintained and don't abuse it to much that it'll last a while.
