So I may have the opportunity to buy my dad's 6 cylinder NC, I've got a few questions though;

1) Can an EF/EL K Frame fit an NC easily?

2) What about fitting an EF/EL dash to an NC? Is that much work?

3) How hard is it to fit the 6 gauge cluster like an XR6/XR8 style in place of the digi cluster?

4) Will an EF/EL Steering Column go into an NC?

5) How hard is it to re locate the filter/dryer for easier fitment of an intercooler?

6) Will an EF/EL Pedal box fit an NC?

7) Are radiators the same between 6 and V8 in an NC?

Cheers, Gab

In short,
1 Yes and know. The associated steering stuff needs changing as well.
2 Yes, and a fair bit, if you don't have a door car
3 They are a bolt in job, if you change the dash as well. I have a complete ED dash and 6 gauge cluster here, pity you are in Vic.
4 Re column, do you mean the surround or the whole column. If column, then yes, but then you need EF/EL rack, intermediate shaft and steering wheel. Surround is bolt on
5 Not sure
6 Yes, floor pan/ firewall is very similar
7 Yes, they are interchangeable. My EF has a 6pack rad keeping the 351 cool, as I damaged my PWR in the crash last year.

Hope that helps

Brett

I'll have a donor car, will i have everything needed?

As above, I'll have a donor car

Many wiring mods just to make the cluster work?

If i use the K frame, it should work yeah?

5 Not sure
Ahh well I'll suss it

6 Yes, floor pan/ firewall is very similar
Sweet
7 Yes, they are interchangeable. My EF has a 6pack rad keeping the 351 cool, as I damaged my PWR in the crash last year.
I knew V8 and 6 cyl rads were the same in EF/EL, didnt know about EB/NC though, sorry about your PWR man, that sucks !

Hope that helps

I take it you want to turbo six you NC, using an EF/EL donor car. If that's the case, Swap all the looms from the handbrake forward and all of the associated steering gear and it should just bolt straight up.

Cheers and good luck

Check the gap in the front between the grill and the Rad. You could fit 2 intercoolers in there and still have room.
