Quote from: "8thumpers"Had a play on the cad to draw up a carrier design. The Audi hub will bolt to this "donut" then the suspension arm brackets can be fitted from a jig off the original Toyota hub.
Quote from: "manos3003"Good work Otto!Keep us updated, with as much detail as possible. Interested to see how you can shoehorn this huge lump in that small car.
Quote from: "manos3003"Curious about the driveshafts. Is the offset angle that big that might change the torsional vibrations?For plain-english-peeps: In a hard acceleration, if the driveshafts are at a large offset, will that cause the car to shake horribly, or worse (which I dread to think, let alone mention)
Quote from: "greybeardgt"Offset driveshafts on porkies Ithink you will find the Boxster has drive shafts in line with the rear hubs (the engine is in front) its the 911 (engine behind rear hubs) that has the drive shafts offset forward. The first 911 2ltr had straight driveshafts but had a habit of going through hedges backwards this was cuured? by moving the eng/box forward thus offset shafts! no problem with 911s.transmitting power through there shafts cheers grey beardgt
Quote from: "toyofan"Hi, cool project!!!Regarding the rear hubs, have you considered having the audi hub machined down to a normal Bearing (like the Mr2 has as stock) and just mount it in the hub as stock?From the picture it looks like the inner hole in the bearing is big, but the outer diameter looks small.Or maybe you can use find another bearing with the audi inner diameter, and Toyota outer diameter.Just a tip, dont know if it is even possible, but will sure make it easier for you!Good luck whatever you do!!!
Quote from: "secla"The norm on engine swaps is to make a half and half shaft with inner Audi and outer Toyota Having to widen and rework hubs seems a bit more complicated
