why would it be any easyer mate ?
bodywork wise. the gt bodykit is harder to fit on a non turbo starlet than sorting just side skirts on an ep95. then you just need the front end, rear bumper and rear spoiler(centre number plate garnish too)

EP91 seat frame will not fit the ep95, dont forget that you have a prop shaft tunnel. You will have to use the ep85/95 frame and maybe the seat will bolt onto the frame without issues but even then you will have reason to go BRIDE...

the ae86 rear axle does look very similar but will the lsd fit,

AE86 rear diff doesn't fit directly. Halfshafts have a different diameter spline, pigs head is slightly different as well. but it can be made to work.
From my experience with ae86 rear ends it looks to me like the rear end is the same as a ae86 SR or base grade so lsd wouldn't fit but perhaps if you get a ae86 gt rear end (early model zenki) and cut off mounts and reweld starlet ones, that may be a solution, if you can confirm the stock rear final drive i could tell you if there is a ae86 ring and pinion you could get to match, the problem with this is the ae86 is 4x114.3 spacing, I will have to take a closer look at my rearend,

I have discovered the rear wheel bearings are same as ae86 SR

if its anything like the subaru i own half of with my brother

it should handle immense but have the power and take off to kill subarus all day long

infact i doubt theyd be much on the road that would stand a chance against a 4wd 300 + bhp starlet
if it was built right and everything i am imagining right now lol it would whoop apsolutely everything lol i imagine it wud take a scooby or evo with insane bhp to ava chance against it lol

in real world drag racing its like this

better off the line than subarus
cant compete with evos off the line

an evo with over 500bhp and launch control is a sight to behold. starlets are good but we cant beat everyone. in the march meet weejohn raced an fq320 evo with the larger 360 turbo fitted. it got off the line quicker, weejohn caught it up but just missed out.

A guy who lives local'ish' called staven who forged and fitted my friend adam stowe's engine is running a custom garrett gt30 and is around the 400bhp in his EP95. I do not think he is on this site though. Fastest starlet i've ever been in. I wil ask adam more deatails about stevens car as it's been ages and I can't remember details about the car. Think Trevor and Peter Smyth know him too.

Found out that he is on here but very seldom, and he posted a reply on this very same thread AGES ago lol Thats steven below

If you would like Pictures of the internals of the EP95 gearbox and transfer box send me a pm with you e-mail address. You will destroy synchro rings etc in the box before you break anything to do with the 4wd. Do not listen to rubbish about 200-250hp being the limit.
