Thanks bro.. :)
b.t.w sr20 is a great motor hehe.. mine is bone stock except for the turbo,turbo manifold,injectors and oil sump..
had to stay with sr20 coz over here it's a lot easier to maintain, i prefer to run it with 4g63 but over here gearbox options are very limited for this motor to be mated with tu run it RWD.. in fact i have a destroked 2,2 ltr 4g64 lying in my store room from my previous drag car :) but due to the limitations of gearbox option to run it RWD i decided to stay with sr20 instead :)

What size wheels you running? Did you need larger wheels for extra ground clearance. Would love to see how you modified the cross member to take the new engine.

Top work
