Well I think Ill tell the short version of the story. late 2009 i picked up a written off bf xr6 turbo with a six speed an a few aftermarket goodies for a modest price of 6500. now what i thought was a 6 month build has taken 3 years and its still not finished. I will tell you what i have completed so far. I have the bf kframe in motor, gearbox, dash, HIM module, pedal box and all the wiring. At the start of the year my daily crapped itself. So i threw the standard seats in an thought why not Ill register it just to drive the car around and see if i find anything wrong. Well that lasted 6 months. Ill take some pics tonight as the car is at my shed. And if anyone has any questions fire away I might be able to help you. ill post some pics tonight as my car is at the shed.

nice, at least you arent half a*** and fitted a non turbo motor and 4 speed auto, good to see the snail hangin off the side of the head and the t56, if your gonna do this conversion might aswell fit the 6 speed instead of breaking the 5 speeds lol

cheers mate. its been a long time in the making. an hopefully well worth it wen its finished.

had a pretty productive weekend sunday went on a roadtrip to adelaide to go to u pull it. got sets of diff gears for me an me mates. so if ur plannin on goin to u pull it lonsdale to get a skyline diff dont. i have all the gears out of them lol. also i mucked a round with the spoiler on my ef. i have a bf xr6 wing all i gotta do is make up some spacers so the wing dont touch the rear quarters. i also found a mechanic that sells diff centres that are kind of like a detroit locker and they fit in a borgwarner housing there cheap to only 600 bucks. i should have one by the end of the week. ill post some pics of it wen i get it. in the mean time heres a pic of the wing
