    As above is this a big job I’ve rattled my bent cam and been offered this at good money. The engine is from a rwd car so is there much wiring work to do?
    thanks in advance

    The engine itself will drop right in. If you can get the engine loom and ecu with it, your job will be a lot easier. If you can't, i don't think it's many wires that need to be moved.

    yea but usually on a site based on drifting, it's usually a given that it'll be Rwd. Especially since it wouldn't make sense to put a Fwd engine in an S14.

    I’m currently doing this conversion also on my s15 , Engine in and plumbed up was easy and can be done in a day,
    I’m now looking into the wiring too, looks scary but that writeup looks pretty good, Going to start it next week ....so can let you know how I get on.....
