    Default 1mz-fe rwd conversion in SA63

    Hi peeps,
    I thought I'd post my project for some constructive criticism. Here's the early stages.
    1 sa63 liftback, 1 xv20 v6 Camry(engine,loom),wolf street ecu and hand controller, wideband O2, 1 rt142 avanté (f series disc rear subframe, fuel tank), r33 skyline f&r brakes rotors and master cylinder, S13 knuckles, camber tops and coilovers, gk tech 5 stud front hubs, GH sigma lca's, ms123 rear hubs.
    Any input on suitable rack ends for power steering. A bit puzzled by all the info I've searched on here.
    Hope that ajps height adjustable rear spring seats can be adapted and i will fit some camber and toe adjusters.
    Sigma lca's have ball joints with a press fit that is 0.4mm smaller than the s13 ones....maybe heat on the lca and freeze the ball joint may work????
    I will fab. An intake, rebuild the engine with forged rods and pistons. Also i will try to wedge a pair of Garrett gt2860r turbos on custom exhaust manifolds or a decent size single. Maybe a gtx3582r if twins won't fit. Bigger injectors, pump & lines with a surge tank.
    I would appreciate any positive input for my project
    Thanks Toymods Crew.

    I put a non VVTi 1MZ into a SA63, easy as, tons of room.

    With my KE, I used S13 crossmember, KE70 control arms, AE86 PS knuckles, S13 rack with R34 rack ends, AE82 tie rods, RT142 corolla steering knuckle from rack to coloum

    Cheers for the input samkaos. I've read the thread on your build. Nice work!
    Did the 1mz fit with the 2s bellhousing or do I need to source a 3y one?

    I couldnt get the starter to fit with a S bell, didnt try a Y (but I can, I have one). I went for a 4Runner 3VZ or 5VZ bell
    I have photos somewhere of the 1MZ in a SA63 I will dig up.

    The photos are definitely of interest Sam.
    I read through the thread on Joels build on here, which says to use the y belhousing. I have found one this weekend so I'll fit it and see how it looks.
