Conversion Decisions !
Posted 12 September 2012 - 05:37 PM
so that leaves me with the decision of what engine to buy.
definitely going for an s13/14 half cut so i can do the steering/suspension conversion at the same time.
ca18det was the first that comes to mind but half cuts can be difficult to come by.
sr20det is the next option and although a little more expensive there are a bunch of parts and half cuts.
rb20 has been done heaps and pretty cheap however would like to keep it to a s family motor.
so basically I'm tossing between sr vs ca.
i know the sr will require some gearbox and driveshaft mods
any other advantages/disadvantages for each engine.
wiring/road worthy won't be an issue as only track car and dads an auto elec with experience on both motors.
would love your opinions !

The SR to CA20e gearbox mod is easy. Find a blown SR gearbox for cheap and swap the bellhousing and lower carrier bearing and means no tail shaft etc mods.
Wiring will be easy for both engines if your dads an auto elec! I have pinout guides to the old CA20e and SR20 if you need.
