gtv6, 3.2 conversion, ecu question...

i have the oppurtunity to purchase a 3.2 24v complete with wiring loom and ecu from a 2010 GT
what id like to know is...

can the loom and ecu be used in a gtv6? can the ecu operate as nomal by itself? (ie. doesnt need to converse with the BCM?)

cheers, Brad

916 gtv / spider 24v gasket kit

im looking for a 916 gtv 24v engine gasket / seal kit.

IAP and centreline both have a listing for the 164 24v engines but not the 916 gtv. does anyone know if these gasket sets are the same? or the best / cheapest place i can order the correct kit from?

cheers, Brad

Re: Turbocharged 79' GTV - Track Car Build

started on the brake / clutch issue. because the sr is so far back compared to the nord there is no room for a clutch and brake mastercylinder. so ive decided to make a custom floor mounted pedal box (what i can make for material costs would cost around $400-500 for a wilwood or tilton) 3 pedal/ 3 m...

Re: Turbocharged 79' GTV - Track Car Build

Re: Turbocharged 79' GTV - Track Car Build

the other option was to cut a nissan driveshaft and a alfa one, sleeve them, plug weld and weld around the ends of the sleeve then have balanced. a lot of work required so glad it turned out so simple. how do u plan to do urs? using the bolts on the axle flange would be easier, would require longer ...
