This is one of those questions that is pointless. This is because it is possible to buy a car that is already the way you want it to be (4WD) and you don't have to bankrupt yourself and drive yourself insane trying to convert a 2WD chassis to 4WD.

i bought this car a a bit of a show pony. now its a fully built 30/26 and hopeing to make some big number and would like the 4wd traction and handling to go with it. not into rwd drifting or skidding

If you have the cash flow mate then go for it, People are just jealous. Yes easier to get a AWD to begin with, But like you said, Youve spent 100k, Whats another 10k if it going to be exactally what you want and need.

I think it would be quite a big project though, BEst off getting the atessa pro unit form a vspec GTR, They are quite a bit quicker in sending info.

Transfercase, G sensors, Will need wheels to be same rolling diamator to keep the AWD happy.

Atessa pump will need to be set up in the boot?

will also need atessa ECU mounted in the boot aswell

try looking into a wrecked R33 GTS4, Uses the same drivetrain as the GTR, Body wise its a gtst, just using a 26de and gtr running gear.

Shafts, ect should all swap over

This pretty much

Just find a straight shell, paint it and use the drivetrain etc plus all your stuff in it. Easier then converting yours and risking it being slightly unbalanced/dodgy or something like that.

So put an auto into it and use decent tyres. Weight wins when it comes to handling.

Either way as stated you'd basically need an entire car to donate. It's not a simple case of bolting on parts. You need looms, ECUs, G-sensors and everything else to go with it. It's not a simple job by any means of the word.

ok thanks for the info. I think i might try and sell mine as a complete rolla less motor and get a gtr or gts4 and start all over again and cut my losses.

Any one interested in a show car rolla.lol

    • I visually inspected the threads and they look intact and not so dirty, so I don’t understand why they wouldn’t thread in straight.    How would a chaser cause any damage? It’s intended to clean up the threads right? Even if it was cross threaded. That shouldn’t be the case though because the studs that were removed were OEM. The intake side had no issue. 
    • Well, try the new studs first, in case the US sourced studs are actually the problem. But given that the head is off the engine, at least it won't be too hard for someone to install helicoils if it turns out the holes are stuffed. You don't want to just run a tap or chaser through there if by doing so you leave behind 3/10ths of f**k all thread and the studs just pull straight out when you torque up the manifold nuts.
    • Hey everyone, I’m having a bit of a crisis and would like some advice.  I am in the process of assembling a head I had gotten back after NAPREC did their work. I had the exhaust studs removed prior to sending it to the machine shop, but afterwards when I tried threading in new studs, they wouldn’t go in straight. They would thread in smoothly by hand with almost no effort, but it doesn’t go in straight (noticeably circular motion) and eventually stops about halfway in. I had a couple go in perfectly straight with no effort, but when I removed them to try it again, they no longer when in straight and had the same issue as the others. The studs I’m using are M8x1.25, which I read was the standard. I did some research and decided to buy a chaser kit and new studs IEE NZ just in case. Has anyone experienced this? How screwed am I? Do I just need to run a chaser or tap and try again? Prefer a chaser because I heard taps can destroy existing threads.    Note: I also have a new set of intake studs that went straight in just fine that I bought from IEE NZ. I bought the exhaust studs from the U.S.
    • Photos. What you describe sounds impossible, given how the arms are assembled to the upright.
    • Hello everyone.  Since the last stint of turbo upgrades, the intake plumbing from air filter to turbo was made up of sections of ally pipe and silicone bends. This was done as the stock suction pipe was so restrictive, it was noticable on the dyno. The configuration and layout of the m35 engine bay meant that the intake plumbing was too close to the exhaust manifold, even in contact with the heat sheild in one spot. Apart from that i had to use the first section of the stock suction pipe bolted onto the turbo. Although the setup was much better than the stock suction pipe, it still caused some restriction and excesive heat into the incoming air. Its like trying to suck a thickshake through a thin soft drink straw, possible, but you gotta work really hard. Then add the heat...for those that may not know, the hotter the air, the further the oxygen molecules are apart and the less explosive a given area of air is when mixed with fuel, hence, why intercoolers work (compressing air makes the molecules move faster which also generates heat). Water injection and nitrous oxide injection also use the same principle.  As the M35 Stagea intake and suction pipe options on the market are very very limited, i decided to fabricate my own from the turbo to the filter and include one silicone joiner to allow for engine twist.  If anyone is interested while I'm in the process, I could manufacture a couple more but you gotta let me know soon. I'll post some pictures soon.
