Ok, So I took the car on my vacation, Lost the rad at the mid point, Ordered a new Aluminum Rad, Shroud, and fans. I then Welded up a substitute out of a Aluminum Dual core rad I had in the parts bin. It was working good, kind of suspected the head gasket as it seemed to be boiling the bottle abit. So I have been looking at various Head gaskets and kits.
But yesterday it all came apart. Well the head gasket went in that big glorious white cloud of smoke.... So Then I realized maybe my temp sensor was bad as everything was fine at the time of catastrophic failure. So now on to my question, What is required to make this work?
This is what I have come up with so far, R23 Base pan and final drive, all R32 engine sensors. Engine mount bases on the motor(use R32) Thats All I can really think of on the motor. Trans requires a different cross member, but I'm not sure which one. Not sure about any of the tranny sensors either. I'm also guessing I'll have to change the transmission rear output tail shaft to, but this is a guess. If anyone can point me in the direction of a build thread or any relevant info it would be great. I have been searching for abit now and haven't really come up with the "do this, do this, and your there type answers.
The cheapest I can find the motor and trans(2000 gtr) is 7500, if some nows for one cheaper let me know.
