In Oct 2012 I purchased this S15 rolling chassis with fresh paint, widebody kit, two sets of front and rear bars, 2 way, coilovers, cage, hydraulic handbrake etc... I think the bodykit on it in this photo looks like shit but it will probably get used and smashed in a hurry - don't really like the cars colour either but I love S15's and I got it cheap Didn't even have a good look at it, threw it in the shed and locked the door for over three months then in April 2013 found this LS3 on gumtree: Had already looked at options of what was around and settled on fueled racing conversion kit - here is engine with the kits Moroso sump and engine mounts test fitted to standard S15 engine crossmember two days after getting engine as the australian distrubitor for Fueled was located just down the road. The billet engine mounts would make a nun moist unless she was the sort of nun who thinks its sacrilegious to put a Holden engine into a Jap car: Fuelled Racing conversion kit requires relief on the RH side chassis rail to clear headers because it keeps the starter motor location standard, using scissor jack here to manipulate bend with a nice piece of wood: Brad tacking the chassis rail into it's new position with his TIG: The final job ready to paint, thanks go to Brad for the great welding The only other fabrication required with this conversion kit is moving the steering rack mounts along the engine crossmember, this is after using a cutting disc on a four inch grinder and some gentle persuasion with large hammer and cold chissel: Dummy mounting engine in bay to find the correct position to tack steering rack mounts back onto engine crossmember so the steering shaft fits nicely between the headers without rubbing, you can see the clearance created by the chassis mod for the headers here too:
There are currently three ranges of gear oils available from Motul, grouped into their base quality. The 100% synthetic “Motul Gear” range comes in three variants, for different applications.

Gear 300LS For high performance street use, with the ability to be used for occasional Motorsport events Best of both worlds – High protection and shock resistance, without the need for resistance against extreme conditions Gear 300 – Suitable for every day driving in high performance vehicles Offers the highest standard in protection of the mechanical components Long life Also available: GEAR FF LSD Type 2 (No picture at the moment) Nismo Competition Oil The Synthetic range, or “Technosyntheses” range – Suitable for use in most cars Best used in your every day car Offers high protection and long life Affordable cost for every day use Motyl Gear (75W90 & 75W80) For a better resistance at high temperature and longer life Suitable for all manual transmissions Synchronised or non synchronised gearboxes Multi ATF Suitable for all automatic transmissions except CVT transmissions. Long life Also available: Dexron III Gearbox 80w-90 Finally there is the Mineral range of gear oils – While technology advances to create superior oils for use in modern cars, they are often unsuitable for older engines and drive train components found in classic cars. This is because of the different materials used in older components, which can have unwanted reactions when in contact with additives contained in modern oils. The Motul mineral gear oils available are: 90PA Mineral lubricant specially formulated for limited-slip differentials (LSD) Suitable for racing cars Passenger cars 4WD Suits heavy vehicles such as Forestry and Construction vehicles Gear Oil90 Mineral lubricant for lightly loaded mechanical transmission Manual gearboxes and differentials Fully compatible with copper and bronze alloys Specially recommended for vintage or classic cars.

More news on that when it happens.
