I'm trying to find all the info on doing a ls1 conversion to my s13. So far it's all coming together pretty easy but I'm stuck on two things the clutch master and throttle cable. I know the clutch master has to be reversed because it will not clear in the engine bay and that people use a wilwood but what one? I'm looking for someone who has done it before to help me out. I have googled it and looked all over the place but seem to get over run with LHD info from the states. Last thing is what throttle cable do people use. Thanks for reading any help or links would be awesome.

PS. I know Daft make one but $450 US plus shipping is a joke if you ask me

^^^^ that's for a left hand drive car they still have room to run the master cylinder in the engine bay.

On the right hand drive cars the head is in the way so you can't run it in the engine bay. You have to run it under the dash with a custom pedal like this one

So what I do know about this ^^^ setup is I can't run the standard holden master because it won't fully compressed all the way so you have to use a shorter wilwood type. This is where I'm stuck I don't know what wilwood to use and what size lines? Was hoping someone may no about all that type of crap. I know I can weld up a bracket.

You need a 3/4 mastercylinder.

So this one?

Will that still work with the standard Holden clutch line or will I have to get one made up?

I just used a std holden master cylinder with the standard nissan pedal - just had to swap the pushrod with a generic longer metric thread one and put a couple of nutserts with studs installed in the firewall to suit the bolt pattern of holden master cylinder - works perfectly and no messing around with different pedals etc and clears head by about 5mm.

PS - dont buy anything from Daft Innovations as he will take your money and not send the goods - do a search and read about all the customers he's ripped off.

PS PS - look on SilviaV8 webpage for hundreds of ideas/options of doing V8 swaps in Silvias including quite a few RHD ones

That's good to know about the clutch pedal.

I'm getting sick of my fabricator taking an eternity and thinking of just spending the extra to order in a Fueled kit. Only thing is that I was going to use a TR6060 box so the tailshaft and gearbox mount won't suit.

I used a TR6060 (TUET1660 duel cluster version) gearbox and LSX Drift (Australian distrubutor for Fueled Racing) had several tailshafts in stock including the correct one for me. My TR6060 (picture in my build thread) was an earlier one which doesn't run a rubber donut at front of tail shaft.

Cool, that might be an option then. LSX Drift isn't around anymore though so gotta import direct.
