Umm...... NOWhat do you want to put it in????

Well.... (as we enter fantasy land) lol

You rigg the standard AWD setup to lock out the RWD. Then you could extend the Nose of your car about another foot- foot and a half.Anything's possible with enough money.

RB sentra???

Just kidding... Is a Maxima more realistic? Make an adapter plate for the Maxima 5spd. Oh gosh this is a terrible idea

Wait, is any of this realistic??

lots of fabrication on that part there brother. These blocks were made for rwd specifically. Hence the use of a prop shaft and wierd oil pan with an lsd for the rb26dett. they didn't want a fwd skyline. I believe most ballsy cars are rwd or awd. the fwd guys are soo different. Honest answer is not recommended fwd or even think about it.
