    im currently in the middle of a 20v conversion into the 86.
    about to throw the engine in, but i have heard that the firewall has to be either bent alot or cut. i have heard you can modify the engine to fit but i dont want to spend that money if i dont have to.

    Are you able to bend it without getting a mod plate and how hard is it?

    not sure on the legality. depends where you are. nsw is a big no no but not sure in qld etc. get a bfh (big fucking hammer) and "massage" the fire wall back. by massage i mean beat the fuck out of it till it clears

    no problem if you do it properly.... contact samq about his dissy relocation. using a hammer is not the right way
