bought a G50, now what...?

Just bought a G50/00 "shortnose" gearbox to mate with a JDM EJ20TT.

I already have the Kennedy adapter plate so that will be re usable if I'm not mistaken.

But I need to figure out a lot of stuff, like:

1:Can I simply use CV joints from the same model Porsche as the G50?

2: Do the G50 axles need to be modified and in what way (I'm using stock type 1 trailing arms)

3: Any ideas on what clutch/flywheel I can use? (I have the Kennedy flywheel that's on my IRS pro street->EJ20TT setup now, maybe this is re useable?)

This is the best plasce to ask tech stuff like this so lets hear it guys

The G50 uses 930 size CV joints and they are a fairly common fitment for sand cars.

G50 axles will be too long, one option is to use carrera 4 front output flanges as they are type 2 size CVs, you can then use stock 944 axles/CVs

Kennedy can do you a new flywheel to suit Porsche clutch, or you can copy what Wally did with the shortened bellhousing, main problem then is the ring gear on the flywheel is a smaller diameter.

Hi

You could get your stub axles on your trialing arms altered to take the bigger CVs and then use Sway away axles.

I bought all my stuff from KEP for my EJ20T.

Steve





I had my 944 stubs changes to larger 930 CV size

Thanks for the input guys, really appreciate it.

Picked up the box today and discovered something. I knew it had been mashined on the inside of the bellhousing to be mated to a Porsche 3.6 but it seems the bellhousing and the axle have also been mashined just like Wally did.

This is on one side a good thing ( shorter means easier installation) but on the other side it I can't just order a KEP flywheel and install it like it is now. Will have to mail the people at KEP and see if they can help me out on this.
