Ford Super 8.8 irs swap thread. Rear brakes too

Recommended Posts

I never stopped working on this, and will see this through to the end.  

This is my son Luke, he is 9 months old, and was born with half a heart.  It's a rare condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome.  It's fatal without emidiate surgery and even so it's an uphill fight to make it past puberty.  He's had several heart surgeries and his first one was the hardest, with his chest being held open for a week.


Reason I'm even bringing this up is to get the back story of what we're up against, and what has been taking so long.


While we as a family were in the hospital in San Diego for 8 months I spent a lot of time researching everything currently available for high hp datsuns and the prices, weak links and other issues i came across currently on the market.


I then dipped into my personal gun collection (which is a shadow of its former self now) and over time purchased parts for this conversion, while measuring and doing more research as I went along.


I just recently finished up the actual design and have test fit everything and plan to road test it all soon.


I just want everyone to know that any hold ups I have aren't because I'm vacationing in Europe or have lost interest in 240z cars or playing with other toys.


So long story short, if I can make this kind of progress while fighting the fight of my life, you can bet your butt I'm seeing this through.


And yes I'm seriously considering doing a tacked together kit as well for the diy types.


But just to make it clear, I will absolutely NOT be sharing or selling blueprints or CaD files.


I sacrificed what little bit of time and money I didn't even have to spare to bring something like this to market, and I don't intend to give it away.


It will be the cheapest, strongest and most versatile bolt in diff setup you can put into these datsuns.  But it wont be free.


And no, this isn't my first rodeo on bringing something to market where there was a need.  The 2014 mustang disc brake adapters I've designed for classic mopars have saved a few dozen people a total of 30k if not more so far.  And yes, have put food on my table and diapers on my kids when we needed it most.
