    so i am new to this forum, i have a rolling KE70 shell setup for track, i am thinking about dropping an sr20det into it for some real tyre frying fun, just wondering
    what the easiest method or most suitable way to mount it? and if anyone has done this conversion before are there any problems/issues to keep an eye on?

    i have a ke70 running a sr20det with an s13 front end in it. its a very tight fit.
    you with either have to cut the firewall or set the motor forward on the s13 crossmember.
    definitely not a 2 second job

    I'm doing a custom crossmember for mine soon. I've already cut the metal engine mounts off a KE70 crossmember and linished it clean with a flap disk so I've got a blank canvas to work from. The next step will be drop the motor and box in and modify the removed mounts so I can weld them back on with the motor in my preferred position. I bought an AE71 with an SR and the crossmember in the car is a bit average. I'm moving my motor to the passengers side a few mm to help clear the steering column so I can drop the motor a bit lower also. I'll have to make a new split dump pipe too because I'm re-shelling the car and don't want to bash or modify the nice firewall in my good shell in any way. A lot of guys like to use the S13 crossmember and everything else nissan right up the the top of the strut towers (using AE86 cambertops) but the track increase is significant and I've decided to retain Toyota steering and suspension geometry. SR performs well enough to warrant a brake upgrade so I've got RA40 based Shockworks coilovers waiting to go in with FC calipers on 283mm rotors, also using T3 weld on LCA kit on my lower arms.

    Thanks for your input guys, the topsecret imports guys at blacktown have been very helpful, we are going AE71 cross member with some fabricated mountings and hopefully will be frying tyres in no time
