I've been recently getting back on track in the 34 and figured it was time to take the plunge and upgrade the gearbox.
I bought the car late last year, it was originally an auto, though the previous owner (or one of) swapped the gearbox with the less-than-adequate RB20det box. This month I have been accumulating parts to convert it to the 30A transmission; bought the 34 tailshaft from the UK for pretty cheap as they're going for 100,000JPY ($900-ish) here (Japan) and this week placed an order for a new 30A from Nissan.
The good news is, a lot of the harder to source parts I already have from the previous swap. However, I'm not 100% clear on what I can keep and what needs replacing.
I know there's some funny business involved with getting the 32 mechanical speedo to work with the 34 one, but am not clear on what modifications would have been made and how to reverse them if necessary. From what I've read, the modifications take place on the sensor side. Although, I have come across information regarding calibration of the tachometer.
Will the master cylinder / lines be reusable for the new transmission?
I've put together the following list, and it would be great if someone could point out anything I'm missing.

Hey guys, I'm new round here.
I'm thinking about buying a car in about 3-6 months these are my options from the research I've done. (20-25K budget and I'm on red P's)
1. A non turbo Skyline. From what I've heard it's not a good idea to turbo it later on. But maybe I can reuse the parts if I get a GTT later on and just swap them in. My concern is also resale value, which r34's seem to be holding on.
2. WRX. Non performance. I don't know how good these will be performance wise but they seem the most liveable.
3. The safest and cheapest option I have is an 86 or BRZ. Probs won't turbo, but I can mod it I guess. Only issue is don't think it's a great car long term and resale is kinda trash from what I've seen.
I'm leaning towards the r34, but if anyone has suggestions, would be greatly appreciated!
Looking to purchase an RB26 half cut. I understand the availability is nothing like what they used to be. I’m in Melb and would be looking to purchase in the next 6-12 months if it’s not available immediately. Gearbox not required as a separate gearbox will be used.
any help is much appreciated

So my question today for you guys is, and after looking everywhere I couldn't find anything. I'm really wanting to add a Chassis Mount Spoiler to my ER34 (GTT).
Does anyone know where I can get one, which is compatible with the skyline, and if it even is possible.
And if anyone has even done it. Thank you in advance.
