right then my plan is to buy a donor car to take the LET out of and put it in mine so ;

1. my plan is to drop the lot out of the donor car on the cradle (engine, box, transfer box) then drop mine out make it all up on the cradle as in swap my hubs ,shox etc over on to it do anything that needs doing (will change the steering rack while the engine is out)...

is this the easyest way??????

2. im going to use a turbo transfer box so will i need a turbo prop?? and is a cav and calibra the same prop???

anything else i should do while ive got the engine out that anyone can think of???

thanx in advance :Cool2:

As said on the phone, Turbo prob is different, but only the front part that secures to TXB, its slightly shorter. I have a Turbo TXB on mine mate, and had to buy a new short prop for my exsisting standard 4x4 GSi prop.

But Why change the rack,,, and why change the hubs etc. etc. etc.
Take the block, box and TXB all out in 1 and then just bang it straight into yours,,, Are you keepin the 4 Stud then???

Sounds great but we was thinkin that if you get another person, then me and Jim would strip the donor and you and whoever take your engine out ;)

That for the mornin, then pub for grub and beer, then put the LET back in yours in the afternoon ;)
