    GTO/ Legnum parts share

    Does anyone know if any GTO VR4 parts are compatible with Legnum VR4 as just bought a cheap GTO. Think ECU
    is blown so may break unless anyone has one for Z16A n/a mk 1? Am thinking brake upgrade for Legnum but havenít heard of anyone doing it?

    Someone has but I can't remember who, when or how or even if they succeeded.
    Parts tend to be Evo and Eclipse, not GTO.

    Prior to selling mine i wanted as a long term project to see if a GTO engine and drive train would fit a legnum. As the GTO powerplant supposedly is quite tuneable, I had a friend who got 450 quite easily and just needed to pgrade his clutch for more.
    Unfortunately its an idea ill never do unless i get another leggie or use that engine for the kit car when i finish moving around with my job.....

    as far as i know the GTO engine and gear box are the opposite way round in the engine bay so every thing is the wrong way round. i presume the engne and gearbox mounts would all have to moved not sure the steering rack.

    Bye for Now!

    Yeah , i saw they were the other way around hence why i was thinking the engine and drivetrain...the only thing i thought of preventing it was once the engine and gearbox was in if the driveshaft would still use the legnum transmission tunnel to the rear but from pictures its looks pretty central like on the leggie. But unfortunately smokey jo has now gone so an idea that i'll never try. I was thinking you occasionally see GTO's come up cheap with rotten bodies.
