  1. If you have to move the shifter 3.5 inches your engine is way forward of where mine is. No idea why. PS I have the complete engine and trans from 04 GTO. Swapped shifters, oil pan and alternator to F body. But I made sure the GTO stuff for sure would not fit first. Just my experience on only one car, I am no expert. HTH, Richard.
  2. I think you will need the F body to go through the factory hole. Just buy a shifter with an offset built in. Sort of Z shape, my PRO shifter came with 2 or three handles one offset to the rear. HTH, Richard.
  3. Almost all of us keep the Z pedals. Swap the clutch master and it all works fine. We swapped the Datsun push rod from the Wilwood or Tilton. Doing this makes it a very simple part of the job. HTH, Richard.
  4. I put 280Z stubs in, will they fail, no idea, but they are stronger than the 240z series one stuff that was there. Have the rest pretty tough already, so I felt if a stub breaks we can swap them for other stubs that will match the rest of the stuff. Which is: 930 CVs, 300m shafts and DSS inner flanges for the 8.8. The rear stubs are the only part of the car that is still Datsun, lol. JMHO, Richard.
  5. Glad to know the DD AC mount works, I could not find anyone that had used it, just JCI. Nice job. Richard.
  6. When you are done, there will be so much time on your hands, you won't know what to do. Good grief what a lot of work. If this had to be done by a pro, it will be a mid 6 figure bill. Great job. I seem to have said this before on the thread. Keep posting pictures, I hope I speak for others, we love to see the progress. Richard.
  7. I have all poly, no big deal, it is not supposed to be a lexus. R

    Best LS Swap Kit?

    I used the complete CX Racing kit. ALL of it. There were no instructions but everything worked. There are a lot of little details that need to be attended to. I found it well worth the money, but it looks like based on other posts it only works for 6 speed cars. I can't say enough READ, READ, READ, this forum. Days and weeks of research will save you hours of time and tons of dollars. These LS swaps have been around a while and all the mistakes and triumphs have been made before. Sure there are multiple ways of doing anything but the stuff that works is used over and over again. HTH, Richard.
  12. First suggestion is to take pump out and make sure it is compatible with your LSX power level. Pulling it will let you know for sure which is which. My thought is Larger line is supply, smaller is return. It appears there are two vents one to the engine eval and one to the filler. HTH, Richard.
  13. I had to notch the mount a small amount for the shaft to clear. HTH, Richard.

    Gauges gone nuts

    Something is loose all those items get ignition/accessory power. Check all the main connections that feed the fuse box. Just guessing. Richard.

    That is going to be fantastic looking. Great job on the waiting too. Richard.
