    s13 and s14 to skyline conversions are now being done by the best shop in the usa, full race :)

    pricing is rumored to be
    your 240 + your r32 clip + 12k

    but thats not offical, and don't quote me.

    Thats still a bit cheaper than a US-spec R32, which is damn near impossible to find. If I had the bones to pay for it, I'd rock it.

    If the trans case, motor, rearend, and suspension can be retrofitted to a RWD car, I wonder what else can be done.

    AWD Supra anyone?

    you know how everyone says, "i think i just threw up a little in my mouth"?

    well, i got a new one. "i think i just came a little in my pants".

    I fucking despise the guy who is builing this car.he has the shadiest business ever and if it was legal, i would kill him. no bullshit. he rips off more people and gets away with it. but he's working on the awd. it has an rb26dett in it and the r33 front. i hope this man gets the worst case of herpes ever, on his face.

    new rims came in today!!! - Northwest Nissans

    Ummm... are you confusing Full-Race with one of the 972309847209384203984 other manifold manufaturers? Full-Race has a flawless reputation... notice how Brian referrered to them as "the best shop in the usa".

    you are confusing his statement with fullrace. Im pretty sure he is talking about the guy in the link.

    240: 5k
    clip: 4k
    conversion: 12k

    W/O suspension, wheels, and brakes... youre looking at 20k. Id rather buy a Volvo xc90 :lol:

    yep, i was referring to the guy in the link i posted. i think full-race would have to supply the clips. it would be to hard to find one with good body panels and then ship the car and a clip down there. it wouldn't be worth it.

    there is no body work involved. you get the clip for the suspenion parts mostly....

    the car pictured has a body kit on it... its not skyline body panels.

    your car will look the exact same as when you sent it to them, save for the power plant, and suspension.

    so it's basically just an rb20det awd s14? i've seen a few s13's like that around here. i thought that was an r33 front end on it. headlights to. but then again i'm as blind as a fat bitch with swollen eyes.

    RB26DETT AWD S14

    read what's on the site, it's allot of work but it seems off balance. What do they do to the rear of the suspension?

    Consider all the aftermarket and build up you can do beyond a stock clip? seemingly endless upgradability...

    Im actually considering doing this, was thinking of a getting an s2k or something in the next couple years but i may go this route...
