    I dont need another project 13

    Picked this up the other day from RossB and intend to at least get it structurally sound and as oem as possible maybe coilovers and intercooler!

    Keep it short and sweet, pics to follow!

    Passenger chassis leg cut out and I've mostly stripped the bay!

    Good job, Rich

    Did it come with engine, wings and front bumper, or no ?

    If you need a couple of tidy facelift 15s for it, I have two sat in my garage

    I could possibly drop them off in Southampton as a fly-past when I'm going to Essex

    I have every panel in good condition too, no engine and box unfortunately but will source or build one!

    The wheels are in good shape I think just need a decent clean!

    Will check and let you know

    Best laid plans and all that. I bet he planned to RB it

    It was all those years ago destined for an electric motor

    Isn't there a TV show where they take retro cool cars and stick leccy motors in them ? Could be a cool conversion for a 13, do you think ?

    Sudden change of position from a sarcastic RB but I approve

    Oh, Rich - you left the caliper bracket kit on the floor under all the leaves - pretty sure it was for RB calipers, if you want it I'm happy to post.

    Given how many successful RB conversions there have been, failure to fit an RB into an S13 could be seen as a case of aiming low and missing.

    Going electric is a very tricky conversion compared to wedging an RB in so I applaud your ambition AND your recognition of the project's failure and selling on the S13 so it could be restored to the road instead of just letting it rust into the ground.

    I wouldn't even consider trying to convert a retro to electric but I do think I have the skills to do an ICE engine swap if I had the inclination.

    RB conversions? I can't tell if that was sarcastic. There maybe a few but very few are road legal.

    Howmanyleft.co.uk shows ONE taxed 200SX with engine 2.5L-2.6L and 1 SORN. There is ONE taxed with engine size 2.4L-2.5L and 4 SORN. So the grand total of road legal RB's in 200SX is SEVERN, 2 RB26 and 5 RB25.

    Electric conversion has been in done US, Joule Injected.

    It would make more sense to use the rear motor from a Tesla.

    I wouldn't trust How Many Left at all, to be honest, let alone DVLA records being properly updated.

    There was a point where I knew three RB converted S13's as personal friends.

    Cut a hole in the floor ready to replace.

    Cut out and mostly prepped passenger sill, this is the only real bad area the rest is exceptionally clean and straight!
