EJ25TT swap help need Info plz
Posted 14 October 2005 - 07:09 AM
i have a 91 liberty (legacy) GX 4WD auto station wagon
and i have after hard thinking decided to start modifing it
as it is an auto wish to change it to manual, i kno wat is needed to be done to change it 2 manual after having done it to nissan S13's.
i want to use the EJ25TT as a base powerplant as i want to do his i want to use the gearbox that would come with this engine, knowing i would buy a half cut of a 96 jap spec legacy with a EJ25TT and manual box.
my question is can i use the manual box from this engine or do i have to use the stock 91 box, as this is my main concern that the new box won't marry up in relation to where the old box was.
any info or pictures of someone who has done this before would be very much apicated.

as for being an ej25tt, i might be wrong but it will be a EJ20tt.(which is a very proven powerplant) they ej25turbo is a relitivly new powerplant.
the tt powerplant and trany should work fine. the only thing is if you car is left hand drive the second turbo will sit right where you stearing shaft is. if you have a RHD then you will be ok.......
the only other thing is your car should be a cable operated clutch and the tt car should be a hydrolic clutch. but if you getting a front clip you should have everything to make it work....
good luck and keep us uptodate

and as it is RHD the turbo shouldn't hit the steering shaft, will take me time on this one and should be completed next year?, new engine is being subjected to new internals and all the usal and expected mods.
first mods, vented slotted rotors and the front brakes being fitted on the back, coilover supension and sway bars to start it off
will post pics if im not feeling lazy
