    hi
    Me and my mates doing sr20 conversion on his AE86.
    Any suggestion on what to look for? As in drivetrain, the tailshaft and the diff will be udgraded ofcourse.
    we seem to be having problem with the engine sitting a bit too high.
    and the steering is not going in properly.
    Anybody hav the same problem?

    thx

    what mounts are you using?
    you will need a custom tailshaft made.
    a F series diff will do the job, need to be modified to ae86 mounts.
    the suspension question depends on what cross member your using.
    a little more info would make it easier to answer the questions

    youll also create more issues like having to use s13 suspension, steering rack etc. the best way is two put a 2cm spacer on the crossmember thats what if done then i got modified metal engine mounts and gearbox mounts and custom tailshaft

    yeah its not necessarly a bad thing though. by using a sr20 y change the car might as well use the s13 stuff to go with it. but BUT THATS MY OPINIOUN sdosn't mean any one will agree with it.

    Bolting all the s13 gear in, you might aswell keep your ae86 daily and buy an s13. Talking from experience. I'll explain more later if you can't figure it out.

    ...

    Me and Nam, I think his name is (dude with a kouki face on zenki s14 that's black and has a leaking turbo line) were talking about your car on Saturday.

    Oh yeah, when JSP says you need a new manifold/magical downpipe, he's referring to lhd cars so normal 3" downpipe and front pipe should fit on our rhd cars.

    The sr20 ae86 in the gallery isn't using those mounts. I have pics of an SR with those mounts in an AE86 if you want to see them.
