That’s a big gearbox, and that is an ugly ass interior. Some pretty bland progress at the moment, lots of measuring, even more marking and test fitting before I cut a bunch of metal out. 1200 body is 0.8mm, it’s butter to cut. I need to notch a little bit near the gear stick otherwise the rear of it is cut as much as needed. I am going to make a bubble on the passenger side for the exhaust to sit up high in otherwise there is virtually no room for an exhaust between the gearbox. It’s not like there is much room for passenger feet anyway so no real loss. The back of the cylinder head is hard up against the firewall in this shot, I may massage the firewall a bit to get it as far back as I can before I run into m/cylinder problems. I don’t know which keyboard warrior first said you only need to bash the tunnel a bit to get an SR20 in there but I’d hate to see what it would look like if you tried.

    yeah man mean as.

    also, i just did ca18det in the dx and i used a rb20 gearbox rear casing with internals bolted to the ca bellhousing.
    which made shifter about 75mm further foward. prity sure you can do it with the sr one too.

    keep up the good work man

      I was under the impression SR bell housings were different to CA and RB that are the same? Ah well, she’s cut now, no going back haha

    Cool chris, you gana fold up some metal boxes to go around cut out bits?

    • beeoneoneoh said

      Yeah, will make a raised box for the shifter and something more rounded for the firewall – tunnel. Best part will be the exhaust bubble though

    love the idea of an exhaust bubble, something I really want to do in the future. Seen a guy on Ratsun.net do something similar on a 510, sort of like a secondary tunnel attached to the driveshaft tunnel. keep it up!
