hells yeah theres lots of room. when i first got it in there i had to pull the intake manifold off like 10 times just to get to the fuel rail and change out injectors. there was alot of room to work and every bolt was simple to get to. once the manifold is off everything on that side has waaaaay more than enough room to work. rbs seem to be the perfect fit so i dont think ill be trying out any more motors in the m any time soon.

thanks for the nice comments guys. heres some video from last night. you can hear from the video that these asre some sticky tires and i was having a hard time keeping them spinning. that and they were boofers so they were rubbing the top of my fender well in the rears.


btw anyone know how to make the youtube screenshot instead of just word links popping up??? i tried using the youtube button and pasting the link in the middle but its not working for me on this site for some reason.

***edit thanks**** ez22!!!

Is that a neighborhood you are drifting in? :lol:

Car looks good, but what are boofers? What diff is in the car?

For the youtube stuff, just copy the embeded code from youtube's website then paste it in the forum after clicking on the youtube button.

hahha nah thats just an industrial area where my friends shop is at. theres no houses anywhere near the area. we're working on my bumpers there so whenever we got some spare rubber to burn and no one else is working we get to go out and play.

hahha boofers=some big ass tires. i think they are like some 245-40s continentals on 10.5s. i was running 265-35s on my 12s when i fitted the fenders to them but, for some reason these tires were about 1.5-2 inches taller than the 265s. everytime it bottomed out and sat, i could feel the top of the tires rubbing and holding back. im used to running 225-35s or 40s on 10.5s so the sidewall doesnt flex as much. my fronts are 225-35 on a 10.5s and they feel cherry.

diff is just a welded for now but i have a nismo 2way in the garage that im thinking about putting in. its either that or trade my friend for my old tomei back and put that in.

dang you guys are good with this computer stuff. thanks for the help ez22. the forums that i usually use just has to put the web address in and it works. how do you guys even figure out that kinda stuff?

dang sorry to hear that man =( i know what youre going through. i aint had a job since last october but luckily for me while i was working, all my extra money went to my car parts. it sucks that i have to sell off some of the nicer things but at least im not too far in the hole yet. its always nice to have some good helping hands around though!!! glad you still got the m at least!!!

i cant really tell the differance. ive never just pounded the car to drive straight yet other then to get up speed to kick it out. i can feel the slight power differance from the motors with turbo in that sense but other than that, they all feel pretty much the same once you get them going. i was just driving daves(DRIFTUR) car yesterday and it felt a little better than mines but, i think thats cuz his springrates are a little stiffer than mines.

surprisingly enough, i really liked the stock dohc ka the best out of the bunch. if the driveshaft bushing didnt snap on me, id probably still be daily driving around that old red m today. easy fix but at the time i just lost my job and having 2 project m's was out of the question. it felt like it was the lightest motor and picked up speed pretty quick.

btw, i just found a new motor that i wanna try out so i just posted this setup for sale on the local forums. hopefully someone picks this up and i can try something different out.

Sad to hear it but the up side is that you've already completed the engineering of the swap and that information didn't leave with the engine.

I understand the times being tight and owe my landloard 2,200 dollars but........I'm inventing and building things for his ford GT car so he's letting me slide.......for now.

Next monday starts crush time and a full on job search because I am almost out of things to do for his project.

Do you recall what the specs on the Gravity's were? It would help me decide a few things in the future. :mrgreen:

hey welcome to the club!!! specs on the gravitys were 215-45 on a 17x9.5 +26. thats the widest and lowest offset they go in 17s. i think they make a +15 or 12 in the 18s though. i think i was running either a 10 or 15 mil bolt on in that pic.

these cars were made to handle some pretty nasty offsets so if you plan on buying non-dishy wheels, you should start stocking up on some spacers. the rears especially. it can look pretty sick all flushed out though. i didnt take any pix but with 50mil bolt ons out back these were rubbing the side walls off my tires. but that was with 50 series. i think if you go 40 series you should be pretty close to the fender still but not rub.

damn havent been to the shop for a while but the boss got the front bumper almost done!!!!! just need to skim it a few more times to get it perfect. you can still see where we connected it in a few spots. the boss wont be satisfied until its perfect though!!!

also my friend was wondering if anyone would be interested in buying some copies of either, the full kit or just the front bumper fitted to the m30???

anywho heres some updated pix of the bumpers to keep you entertained!!! sorry for the shitty quality pix was take with phone
