WOOT! No matter how difficult this swap gets, I really like seeing encouraging things.. JUST by chance, almost the entire lower engine harness is a direct fit from ca20 -->Rb25 this means:

-Reverse light clip PLUGS in
-Neutral safety switch PLUGS IN
-Oil pressure sensor PLUGS in
-Starter and relay PLUGGED in

The only thing there arent accomodations for are the two knock sensors and the speed sensor, I am going to integrate these into the main EFI harness and route them along to the ECU as that is where they are going (non-chassis related).

Sweeeeet.

[quote name='RB25sx - SLPR' date='Jun 13 2006, 08:34 PM' post='87768']
So it began (Well it's been started for a couple weeks now)

I figured i'd post a few updates as some people may be interested.

The flow of jobs goes as follows.

Strip the front end
Remove CA20e
Prep engine bay
Remove EFI harness
Drop front suspension and crossmember
Bolt RB25 to new mounts
Test fit new 240sx struts and crossmember
Attach RB to 240sx crossmember
Lift car on top of engine/tranny
Lower car
Bolt on crossmember
Measure driveshaft & call drivetrain shop
WIRING!!!!!
Shifter  locating
Fuel lines
Install walbro
Radiator (240) install
Install cooling fans
Route intercooler (FMIC) piping
Finish off any loose ends (clean up wiring)
START (hopefully) engine
Connect driveshaft and top off tranny fluid.
Have fun.
Wiring is really going to be a nightmare, so far I know I need to be worried about connecting the: Fuel pump relay, start/on signal. I also have a few connectors on the RB which are "Unknown" and my wiring diagrams lack in the proper info to solve it. I believe they were for the overdrive sensor, brake fluid level, and LSD sensor.. I'll double check though.

Here are the pics!



good luck on it if you need any help pm me and ill be glad to help

I am now at school so there is no real progress being made currently. The subframe was finalized, and the shock towers were 'temporarily' welded so as the car could be moved on 4 wheels. Also, a gaping hole was gouged out of the transmission tunnel so as to let the massive tranny fit.

There are some major issues with the front suspension, namely the T/C rods (240 vs 200 are completely different) and the width of the steerting rack/rie rods. I will have it all sorted though with some TEIN adjustable T/C rods and custom fabbing the 240sx t/c brackets into place. As for the steering rack, I may have to adapt either the 240 rack, or find a combination of 200sx and 240sx rods that will work.

Keep an eye out for the spring, we'll be ordering up some cusco coilovers.

Getting geared up for the summer season of wrenching!
On their way to my doorstep currently are:


S13/14 adjustable tension rods




5 bolt s13 hubs



Fully adjustable S13 tie rod set





Stance  GR+ coilovers bitcheezzzz!



This may be more of a luxury, but if I can, i'll be forking over for these FTD flik's wrapped in TOYO T1-R rubber.



MORE PICS IN MAY!

wow, thats crazy. the notch youre using is pretty rough, but it looks like you got the skills to repair it. very cool project


"like people, every car possesses a unique character, with its own DNA, talents, and idiosyncrasies. push it too hard and it'll turn on you, as a person would. if its worth anything, it gets more interesting the more you get to know it"

luck is earned through hard work and determination, not to mention the willingness to take risks and to see bad luck and setbacks as opportunities for growth and a new direction.

Pics tonight!!

Front suspension is completely assembled, totalled the cost of the parts and not including the brakes and wheels, its 1800$ Canadian..

Front and rear brakes have been powdercoated ferrari red.

14mm wheel spacers.

Rear strut towers have been completely chopped with a jig system installed to line up the rear coilovers.

Steering column is being adapted to work.

Looking for a 1995/1996 J30 axle and diff (VLSD!).

Now, the challenge comes of finding seats that will fit, so far i've tried: 1991 prelude si seats, 1995 mitsubishi eclipse seats, S13 seats, and S14 seats.. None of them truly fit well, and since im 6'3" they MUST sit low....
