It is not a bolt for bolt drop in doh listen to them idiots, you have to make a left bracket for the big silver engine mount to bolt on to the vehicle and for the tranny or gear box another braket needs to be made. On the cross member you can use back your mounts to get the engine to settle in properly I adjusted the brackets on for both front and back mounts. If you want I can bring my car for you to scope out what was done so you will have a fair ideah of what you need to do b4 you start. DO NOT TRY THE P11 Cross member IT WOULD NOT WORK!!! ( TALK DONE) If you need to get a length for the shifter if you are going with a gear box you can measure mine I used a P11 and had to adjust the length to work back. :|

Unfortunately the mount up for the P11 which came with the QG18DE is different when putting in an SR20. THe conversion is different.

all this talk ....... as long as it's a swap .a lot of conversions has to be done .


IMO ......get a mechanic with some experience , make sure that he works real neat because there are so many swaps out there with some UGLY work done on engine mounts and brackets :?

cud you fabricate the mount on the engine side to bolt on to the chassi usin the bolt holes from the qg15 engine or you have to weld it on to the chassi to be fully strengthened
