Gentlemens,

Looking for some info on the gen 2s. Namely, is the R180 conversion easier on these than the Gen 3s? Or do I need to go through and get hubs machined etc as well?

Any guidance on what is needed to do it on these things?

Cheers,
Ben

Awesome. Cheers for that Nick. I thought that would be the case, but needed it confirmed.
So now on the lookout for 6spd conversion bits. Long term however. No coin yet.

im assuming you will go a GD bug R180 rear end? (inc the subframe, because stiffer ;)

be aware you will get about 2.5neg camber on the rear without adjustable rear arms, or maybe camber bolts.
with saying that, it works well, eliminated all my rear scrub with +48's running 225's
and it handles a treat.. and anyone that says goodbye tyres.. camber doesnt kill them that much.. Toe kills tyres!

you also cant use gen4 shift linkage.. needs to be GD

The camber would probably be beneficial for a dedicated track car. Thats assuming hes doing the wide track arms too and not just the diff and shafts
