Someone correct me if I'm wrong, I think N/A boxes go for about $1200? Turbo boxes are a few extra hundred on top of that.

Dunno what the bellhousing costs, Castlemain Rod Shop do them.

Then you need the pedal box and all the usual stuff.

GM Destroya was selling his parts for around $2000... i think.
Compare that to geting a normal one installed for 1500-2000

Not a bad pick up

Well its nearly all done
engine and gearbox are in pedal box is in
just need to hook up the exhaust and all the ancillerys

note: if u are gunna change the pedal box just take the whole bloody dash out its faster... it took me longer to do get the pedal box out (without takin out the dash) than it did to take out the engine and gearbox!

just need to get extractors and a 2.5 zorst.....anyone in perth got one they dont want ;)

the NA boxes are only $750. so they are nice and cheap to replace if you break one.
Turbo boxes were about $1600 last time i asked

hmmmm help

everything is together but when i try and drive it the engine shuts down (not off) then goes again then shuts down!
im going insane....
the auto comp is out so its nothing to do with that....could it be the ecu? need reprogramming to the different engine or something?

you will have to give us more info man - what do you mean by "shuts down"?

does the engine stumble when you put in the clutch? or when you hit the accelerator? is the idle control motor connected? is it facing the right way (its the round cylinder looking thing on top of the throttle body) if its facing the wrong way i think the car will idle too high?

give us as much info as you can.

and one more silly thing - make sure there is plenty of new fuel in it!!! we had a prob with nudges car, would only idle, not rev at all, and it was because there wasnt enough fuel in the tank!!

it revs fine when u not going anywhere if u hold it at around 2k it surges a bit anything over that and its a-ok as soon as it was under any load its like someone is taking there foot off the accelerator the car doesnt conk out but the revs drop to nothing then will pick back up there is also som ecrazy ass ticking like the imobiliser is going on and off under the dash and i have nfi why it would do that only when the car is moving.....everything is plugged in... i have checked and double check...then checked again.

any help would be appreciated :)
just ask if there is anything else u need to know about it...

cheers
