Holden 308 into s12 Hatch
Posted 26 April 2012 - 08:53 PM
I see everyone speaking about weight about comfort about legalities... what ever happnened to just doing something because its cool! I have the car sitting there... I have the motor sitting there.
Its stupid to just not do it. Now - I was wondering if anyone has done it and if so what gearbox they used... and what headers... As this is going to be a bunky cheap build but if someone has pipes made engine mounts a drilled box ect.. anything that would help my cause please share it here :-)
Its a Hatch with the interior stripped - a spare c20 and box with extractors and the current motor which is a ca20 also but this thing has literally 1000kms on the top end. New head rebuilt just before it got a sticker and unregoed. Bottom end never got touched though - so rings let a bit of smoke through... So if anyone needs parts everything is for sale to help fund the build...
I literally am thinking I may drill the bell housing or the block and just marry the 5 speed in there straight onto the 308.. im just wondering how we will go about a clutch.. how the hell will I know the right thickness's ect?

good idea mate. if you've got them sitting there and a couple weekends with some mates then why not!?
a 350 chev married to a 9inch diff has been done before. i believe this'll be the first 308.. at least that i've seen!
i'd say do some headers with the pipes straight out the bonnet.. fu** it.
as for the box, get happy with a mallet on the trans tunnel and put a suitable gearbox in there.
Mickey Thompson ET Street Slicks - $400
S12 & S13 Factory Alloys - $100ono /set
Plus loads more spares in my shed, just let me know what you need!

If anyone has seen my other car you will know I do enjoy skiddies! ha!
Literally blew a rod out of a $30k motor its second time out at Gazzanats so I need to build this to keep me occupied. It may take 2 months or 2 years! ha... I will start with motor - extractors and gearbox and then go from there.
There is a small comp at Wanneroo in June so the aim is to reveal the new toy there!
I will upload some videos of the other car later if anyone is interested. It isnt of Nissan bretheren though.

I'd be keen for some parts if you're selling. What have you got?
Um everything except for body panels, electrics, brakes, diff, tailshaft and the 2 front seats are for sale... What is it you want?
Just msg or txt or call me on 0499 699 098 - I can pull the 100kg or so heshin bag of parts I have in the garage.. the motor with the good head will be out this weekend.. The other motor is sitting on the ground... dunno what its like though.
Just tell me what you need or want. If you want some spares come take everything away. Some are good condition some are cracked or worn in interior...

Call me 0499 699 098 to come view the car.. pics in first post... they are old and car has sat a bit... The wheels are pretty rare 3 peice SSR's They would be worth a pretty penny on their own. Car has just had full top rebuild bottom was getting tired... havent driven it in years but started first go... will probably need some work but dont even bother just put a ca18det in and off you go.
This has the big axled IRS rear on it...
The cars interior is stripped. I have it all but its in varied condition from ok to crap. Paint is starting to fade too...
Probably asking $1000 ono with spare ca20 with extractors.
Video of running about 3 weeks ago before we started stripping it...

Good s12 Gazelle Hatch unrego'd shell let it go for $300 - or will keep it and teach myself fabrication and welding and turn it into a track monster within the next 5 years or so.
