Its a good setup that is very very reliable and has been fine tuned over many years.
The engine has obviously been converted to RWD layout with a 3sgte beams sump and modified
bell housing and starter etc. The engine fitted couldn't be more standard. It has been taken out of a ST205
that had less than 30 thou Ks and fitted with an OS Giken Super Single clutch. I use stock turbo intercooler etc
The intercoolers radiator for cooling is mounted in the boot and has ducting etc. Which is great for drifting in winter as I have no windows in the car HAHA. The firewall was cutout and the motor was moved behind the cross member for a front midship layout. Gives the car great balance and plenty of room to work on the motor in the bay! Lots of little details I could go on about for ages. Things like equal length 4 link conversion and mass centralization etc.
I used to run 6 PSI for about 7 years which was enough for me to get my head around the chassis and learn better lines etc and not just power out of mistakes. Recently I have been running 21PSI which is as high as stock ECU will go before fuel cut and its a different car.
This is 6psi
This is 21
I have done a bit of shnoopin around the web and not found much more than a handful of videos for 3sgte fitment in MRS.
Does anyone have pics? Pics of mounts etc.
Whats the deal with SW20 gear boxes, do they break? Do they have good LSD options? Are there any specific models better than others? Can you run SW20 CVs in an MRS with MRS hubs etc?
