Hi All,
I have read a number of posts but have been unable to find anyone who has done an engine conversion with a purchased subframe.

I am considering options between rebuilding the A-series or a conversion but I do not have the skills/time to build a subframe for the conversion. From a budget perspective I know the conversion will be substantially more but the idea of a more modern engine with reliable HP is tempting.

Is there anyone in Australia who will build a subframe or offers a drive in-drive out service? Have anyone used an overseas company like allspeed?

I am based in Newcastle NSW.

Sorry if this is listed somewhere.

Cheers,

Dean

I'd guess because you need to get an engineer to approve the modification and frame your using and most / all engineers will need to see the frame in the flesh. As most frames are made overseas your stuck with the prospect of ordering an expensive frame and hoping the engineer is going to like it.
Not sure how many people have taken the risk...
At the time I started there were no frames available...

Thanks for the reply!

It seems pretty hard to find a workshop who has completed any of this, it's just a pipe dream at the moment so I'll keep reading :)
