    Haha thanks guys, I'm hoping to give it a bash (pun intended) on Saturday so if you're free please drop by. Beer will be provided.

    Pics of new workshop will not be forthcoming as it is currently occupied by a VL Commodore in a makeshift spraybooth, and I'm ashamed to post any such photos here.

    Wow, so this is the project we've been waiting for. Looks awsome and good luck with it. I'll be keeping a close eye on it and im actually very curious to see just how much sheet metal you'll have to massage under there and what you'll be doing with the shifter. I'd offer a hand if i was in queensland

    If you have a look at the link I posted above it shows a very very easy way to mod the shifter. Got tig?

    ive lifted one side of a JZZ30 subframe, and i think one of my kidneys fell out, i cant imagine what this thing would be like!

    top work norbie! knowing you, you'll probably disintegrate this gearbox too

    we must now redefine "doing a norbie"

    This has nothing to do with the extra ratio, and everything to do with the V160 being twice as strong as the W58.

    I'd actually be rather impressed with myself if I managed to disintegrate a gearbox like this. Pissed off, but impressed.

    I would love to be there (purely to spectate) when this happens and you require a rebuild.

    If Woon can run a 9 with those gearbox's and over a 1000bhp, you should be okay...

    Take up Ballet and harden up Norbie.

    With the help of a few handy Toymodders I jammed a V160 into the transmission tunnel today. It's looking like it might not be a big deal making it fit - it fouled the side of the tunnel but only at the back of the box, there appears to be plenty of room everywhere else! Wilbo also came up with a crazy plan to use a W58 shifter housing on the V160 which might allow the shifter to be in about the same place as a stock MA61 transmission, which would be very convenient indeed.

    Anyway if I can find the motivation I'm going to get under the car again tomorrow, grab a big hammer and bash it good. Stay tuned for updates!
