Well this is my goal a VH45de powered AWD 97 240sx. Started off as a base model and I did a 5-lug/300z front brake conversion. Pulled the engine to put into my son's 91 240sx se that he is learning to drive (pretty cool first car to me). Well enough talk here are some pictures.
At this angle it looks impossible.
At this point it seemed impossible.
Here it is as far as I can get it without cutting things!
Here is the shot of the skyline transfer case I have to make room for. All cutting will be forward of the seat rails so I am excited.
Here is a shot of the kinda built VH45 that will be going in permanently.
I look forward to all of your comments and hopefully HELP. I am new to the 240 world and decided to go all in.
I swapped bell housings so I have 300z tranny with rb bellhousing available...

I've been kicking this idea around for a future project for a while now. Very cool to see someone actually tackling it! Good luck!
Do you already have a Skyline front sub-frame to house all the fwd bits?
you sounded smarter before you opened your mouth

Trying to put up a thread in the Wanting to Buy section but got rejected. Anyone know where I can get an r33 Crossmember at? Tried ZeroLift, Rawbrokerage, and a couple others. I would think that they would be a dime a dozen with no one attempting AWD conversions.....

Talk to Full Race, they built an AWD powered RB S14 so it's definitely doable just going to take some serious engineering. Good luck!
