You can do it quickly. You can do it cheap. You can do it right. Pick any two.

I didn't see what it took to mate the Lexus to the Audi transaxle. Is it that simple and everything bolts up together and plays nicely?

Keep in mind that I'm from the States and some of the model names aren't the same over here, presuming we can get them at all. So what's a Run X? That's what they said the hubs were from. He said it as if it was a Toyota model.

The RunX is one of the local versions of the Toyota Carolla hatchback going back about 10 years so nothing special.

I'd like to see how he got the engine and trans to mate, it's not a straight forward job as I found out.
See here if interested.

The B and C kit seemed to say it was for the Porsche G50 not the Audi. Am I just reading that wrong?

The little bit that showed in your link didn't seem to be all that bad. Is there more fiddling somewhere on another page or 2 that I didn't see? That link didn't have a lot and there was no apparent jump point to more details. The next page I saw was August and it didn't mention it.

Mine is a 1UZ-FE to Audi 012, B&C made the parts for me to my design (with help from other places for the bolting data).
B&C have made a few different ones search on GT40s.com under 1UZ.
The trans in the car in SA I don't think is an 012 maybe an 01E or a 016, not sure.
There's a link on my site to download the plans for my design if that's the route you are going.
