JDM f31 1986 UK.

Post by alramone » Sun Jun 26, 2011 7:32 am

hi. recently brought this leopard, i see the previous owner started a thread for it but i'll start another for me.

it's a 1986 JDM car imported into the uk in 1987, has loads of toys, not sure if you got all of em all in the US?
cruise control, two stage power steering, air con, lectric folding door mirrors, rain sensitive wipers, night sensitive lights, sonar automaticly controlled dampers, digital dash, centrol locking, power windows, power mirrors.

i've got a few plans for this and as it's gonna be used for my daily driver the first big mod is to bin the VG30DE and autobox and fit a turbo diesel and manual conversion :shock:

will upset a few people but hey.

also planing on a full respray and colour change, some lowering and other small mods. need to keep if sencible for daily use thou.

here's some pics as it is now, i've ditched the standard alloys and have got 7x15 steels on it for now.

Welcome to the club. It's a beautiful example you've acquired.

I think a turbo diesel although different would be a welcome change and I for one would love to read about this conversion.

Good luck to you and enjoy your new ride.

Thanks for keeping us updated on the Lep. Just curious, where are you planning to pull the turbo diesel from?

Love the digi gauge cluster and the wheels. Congrats on the great purchase!

turbo diesel engine will be from a terrano. 4 cylinder td27t, i have a 2wd 5 speed gearbox from a London taxi that i will use (they came with a td27)
i think it will be about the right size, the f31 is a heavy old beast. i could have gone for a cd20t as they *should* fit on the standard mounts. but don't think the cd would have enough torque and wouldn't match the size of the car.

digi dash is cool, getting the speedo to work with the new gearbox should be pretty easy, but getting the petrol 6 cylinder rev counter to work with a 4 cylinder diesel is gonna be a lot more work.
