My Gen 1 Brat Swap{Franken Motor}

Recommended Posts

The Legacy's 5 speed trans needed more room so......... Trans Tunnel was made...

This also helped with the angle of the driveline so the pitch wasn't so severe.

^^^ This is beautiful, nicely done. How'd you do the suspension for this bad boy? The front shouldn't have been to bad, but the back must have been interesting.

i mocked up my ej trans last weekend and it hit on the driver's side of the trans tunnel. i'll have to widen it there. but it looks like the gas pedal is directly on the other side where i have to make the adjustments. did you swap over to the legacy pedal set?

So it's been about 5 years on this build...

 

Any updates/further pics?

 

How's it all running?

 

Cheers
