Thats awsome!
I'm looking to do the same conversion!
what were the main problems?
i've read the sump one but how did you get around it?
and also ive heard there are problems with the gearbox?
any help or links to another thread would be great.

thanks mate, we just cut the sump where it was not clearing the cross member and rewelded it so that it would clear. Also the custom clutch was made specially to adapt the ke55 box to the 7k flywheel. It cost a hell of a lot but was worth it as it saved alot of mucking around and it's probably the strongest component in the driveline now.
cheers
Matt.

I'm 99% sure you can just put a 3/4/5k flywheel on the 7k to get around any gearbox issues!!
I am just a worthless liar, I am just an imbecile. I will only complicate you, trust in me and fall aswell.

TAR - KE55E 5KTE. BB T28, 7K EFI, T50...all the good stuff!! :)
DIRT - KE55E 3/4kc. 4k w/- 3kBP head, 609 lumpstick, weber, extractors & exhaust etc....all the left overs!! :P
Un-named RX4 - 13bbp, weber, 2x2.5 ex, lensos....too much more to list!! :?

You could be right on that one, but i'm not sure.

Thank's for all the great comments, i'm still wait for "constructive criticism" which is also welcome.

I think You made the right decision to keep with the 7k flywheel as they are factory balanced and the engine will run way smoother with the correctly balanced flywheel. with the custom clutch setup it should be bullet proof.

I think the car is looking good.

Mmmm, "custom" and "clutch", you'll want to hope it lasts, the next time it needs replacing its going to be a lot more $$$ again. I would personally rather have a standard (ish) cheap clutch set-up and change it a bit more often, than a dear one that lasts longer; less chance of breaking other components if your clutch is the "weakest link". Apart from that, awesome, mega neat 'rolla with grunt, what more could you want?!
