APS Motorsports MGB GT Race Car, Twin Turbo, Space frame Chassis Part 2
Well this is the second video of our Nurburgring Challenger.
As you can see, lots more has been done to the chassis. The mid motor plate
has been profiled and that's the first time the block and gearbox have been
together in the car!
I would like to thank Rob at Elite Racing Transmissions for all his help
Also, a massive thank you to Chris Isaacs for his great work on the chassis
MGC GT Sebring w/ 1JZ powerplant
Alex Washburn's tribute to the MGC GT Sebring's that raced at Sebring 12
Hours in 1968/69, built by Bill @ DSG. To keep the sound of a straight 6
we chose a cost effective 1JZ turbo
Toyota powerplant/R154 transmission instead of a costly/heavy Rover tractor
engine. Suspension is double wishbone in front and Ford 8.8, 3 Link with
Watts Linkage in the rear. Dampers are Penske 8670 3 ways from a 96 MSD
Accord BTCC (David Leslie's hopefully). An Apexi PowerFC will be tuned by
Matt @ DSG in the upcoming weeks but the engine running is a very nice
sound after the work and time invested.
Datsun 510 with Honda S2000 engine
Collection of pictures showing how a stock Datsun 510 got his swap from a
03 s2000 donor ;it takes almost the same time chopping the frame for either
other swap, so I felt more confortable swapping a s2k engine & tranny on
I didn't know where to start, but somehow everything started to taking
place in a house garage with some basic tool that my grampa left me.
Overall this could be called as frankestein swap because of the info and
parts used. Ei: Subaru R160 LSD, Nissan Maxima rear calipers with KYB AGX
Mitsubishi Eclipse adj shocks , front brakes and suspention provided by
Datsun 280zx shocks with eibach springs and Nissan 240sx camber plates
with tokiko adj shocks,Datsun 210 brake Booster with 280zx master cilinder, 04 S2000
motor/ tranny with a custom crossmember 50%honda 50% datsun driveshaft.
S2000 Cluster on 510 frame, old recaro front seats with Mitsubishi EvoVIII
rear seat. mix and match for the datsun / honda wireharness and fuse box ,
AEM standalone system.
Griffin Ford Mustang
radiator, with AN radiator hoses.... the list goes for the wiring , same as
the brake system and plumbing. It took me around 7-8 months to finish it ,
working mostly at night and weekdays.
The main issue was to keep the most of the original geometry of the
Datsun...and basically remained the same, only for the tranny tunnel wich
it was extended. custom header and Exhaust, muffler provided by Greddy RSX type S
muffler gave a low tone on the open pipe Exhaust. the car ran around last months of 08'
..still need some work as the interior carpet and sound system but
heeeey... who cares when you can rev 9k rpm's....!
Bike Engine MG Midget
More than half way through fitting a Kawasaki 900 engine into this MG
Midget. Wiring, mounts, gear change, chassis mods all done. Most of the
removable panels have been painted and are ready to fit.
The next step is to finish tidying the wiring and hoses then remove
everything, finish a small amount of welding and then put into colour
(orange). Ohh and we need a propshaft making!
Sounds fantastic and can't wait to get her finished.
Sorry about the sound, my phone couldn't cope!!!
