Nice man

Do you want your tow bar??

Also the V6 swap ?? What were you planing to swap into it ??
For the amount of work and messing around the FS-ZE is pretty hard to go past.

There is seriously way to much messing around for that swap for the small improvement it would be, unless you went for the KL-ZE but good luck with that, azz knows all about it, not worth the trouble.

I'd be doing ZE swap and then one day I will find out how to wire in the ZE ECU and that will be your best gain and then you can stick with ll the direct bolt on parts for the BJ car and motor, so no messing around with everything and no need for engineering.

Rupe is your man to get the motor through. But when your ready just hit me up I'll try and help you organise as much stuff as possible

Nice purchase there Ben! hope ya enjoy it... don't bother with V6 unless you are seriously that dedicated and you are never ever going to sell the SP20.

its a big Pain in the ass and comes with a Big Price tag.

I have made a thread in the Engine & Conversion section a while ago about V6 swap into BJ... read over it. outlines whats involved and the costs associated in NSW to get it rego'ed and legit!

Gear stick extender removed by twisting the extended tread off with abit of heat for the rubber


Burnt the excess rubber off that was holding the extender on to expose the steel on the gear stick to be able to tread it


Retreaded the gear stick to suit the gear nob and now looks like this !!

I thought under-body neons went out of fashion in the early 2000's! Lol!

Looking good so far!
