Done a lot of searching but havn't found exactly what im after

How close to the firewall is the sr with one of these cross members? pics would be great if anyone could post one up! :wink:

And if anyone knows what comes in the full fitting kit over just the cross members and tailshaft would be great, save me ringing up and wasting their time while im still planning the build

cheers :D

My brother used a SWR kit, pics below;

It sits the motor the lowest and furthest back out of the 3 shops I know making kits in australia.

Kit comes with reversed crossmember, tailshaft, gbox crossmember and reversed steering drag link + swaybar, don't think I'd forgotten anything.

are they reversed 1600 cross members ?
otherwise technically they dont comply with IP rules
but I personally know of a few 1600's with datsport 200b front ends that run IP at club events. might not be a problem until you become a winner I guess :shock:

thanks heaps turbovan :thumbsup:

do you think I will need to modify the heater hose with the turbo line? I was thinking of leaveing it and just welding the reducer at the end(see pic of pipe in talking about)

now that I have a closer look I think it would be to tight but let me know what you think

what did you use to weld it?

cheers

The stock heater pipe wont fit where it goes behind the head, thats why mine was modified as shown. The pipes were TIG welded, but that's because there was a TIG welder handy. You could use MIG, Oxy or whatever, they are just steel pipes.

I used a PLMS dump pipe but I don't think they are making them any more.

The SWR kit is fine, the mad dat one is just a copy of that anyway I think, SWR has been making these kits for many years.
