    Question SR20 into Ksev

    Hello everyone,

    The time has come for the Ke70 to get the SR20 thrown into her. Finally picked up a SR20DE which i will put a set of cams in with extractors to start with till the SR20DET motor is built back up to scratch.

    Just wondering if someone has a thread about the conversion, I think i have seen a few on the old site but I am just seeking what parts are needed for the conversion and the best way to do it!
    I have been told the following things.

    Driveline:
    T18 Series Diff
    Custom tail shaft
    Custom Gerabox Mounts

    Engine:
    Custom Engine mounts (ae71 cross member or ke70 cross members)
    Pedal Box (ae86 one or something else)
    Clutch Master Cylinder

    That is all the information that I have breifly been told and what not! I don't want to run s13 cross member and suspension up front! I have the ae86 struts setup and that is doing fine for now.
    (Also i want to mount the SR20 as close to the fire wall as possible due to apparently giving better weight and all that crap).

    If someone could give me a list of all the stuff and maybe a thread about it that would be really appreciated!

    Cheers barnzy

    Depending on what power you want to be making you will probably want a stronger diff/tailshaft. I'm using a Hilux rear end with a 3" two peice custom tailshaft making around 300hp and it has handled that no worries.
    I'm using a S13 clutch master cylinder but I think you are able to use a standard ae71/ae86 pedal setup/master.

    Your firewall will either need a bit of bashing or if you want you can go to the extent of cutting and welding in a new tunnel to make it a bit easier for gearbox/clutch changes etc.
    Shifter hole will need to be extended unless you are planning on using a RB20 bellhousing.

    You will need your sr20 loom wired obviously, mine cost around $300 from memory wired in.

    Mmmm all I can think of off the top of my head any questions feel free to ask

    shifter hole needs to be extended regardless of what box you use, it only lines up with the stock hole if u have the motor way way way forward in the engine bay.

    Do the diff properly now, so you only need to get the tailshaft made up once, otherwise you're forking out twice, The T series won't last forever with an SR20DE and sure as hell wont last with a DET in front of it. As for what diff to use, theres plenty of other threads discussing that.

    the wiring side of things is really easy. no need to pay someone to do it if you can operate a multimeter and a soldering iron.

    as previously mentioned, theres no room in the trans tunnel to get the box off or clutch out once motor is in the car, so if you ever have clutch or box issues its generally a motor out job to repair. the only way around this is some firewall mods,

    have a read thro my build up thread if u want http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/fo...read.php?t=721
