I'm swaping a JDM 13BT into my 83 RX-7. Can anybody tell me what i need to do to the driveline in a turbo II swap, do i just get a TII driveline a mod it?? Can I buy a transmission "swap" crossmember?? So i can fit a TII tranny in a 12A frame? I have a GSL-SE oil pan and a GSL-SE front cover. plus the racingbeat front mounting bracket.....What else do I need???

Does the TII drive shaft bolt right up or do you have to modify it to fit the 83 rear end??

Find a GSL-SE front-crossmember, and your stock tranny crossmember should work with the TII tranny. (with $10 worth of home-depot parts)



You have to drill two new holes in the tranny crossmember (about 1/2 in back from stock). Then buy a piece of 3/4 in box-steel, drill two holes through it to make the mount, and find two new bolts to fit (same thread as stock, just about an inch or so longer)



I have my tranny out, I suppose I could take a pic.

Here's some notes and pictures that might help... '91 TII engine to '81 GSL notes
