Having done this exact project I can tell you about some of the issues you are going to face, things like gearbox cross member, front hubs and wiring differences.

Have a look for my project thread there are loads of pictures

Good luck and I can't wait to see the end result!

The gtr chassis has a cut out for the 4wd transfer box that the gtst doesn't so the gts cross member doesn't fit and the gtr cross member doesn't fit the gts gear box. You will need a custome one fabricating.

Also the gtr steering rack wiring doesn't have the same connections as the gts wiring loom so you either need to mod that or change the rack AND steering column. The front chassis rails have cut outs for the front driveshafts so you have to use the gtr sub frame.

The front drive shaft also holds in the wheel bearing so I just cut them down the cup and had them balanced.

it weighs a ton, my gtst had 6kg of it on each door, not weighed this yet but it will be around there. i will be running this down the drag strip and around tracks so any weight off will help
