I'm sure this has been done and asked...
 
I post a little while ago about my old SVT that was totaled, but now that I have a bit of cash saved up I think I'm going to rebuild it. Now pretty much everything that happened to my old SVT was cosmetic, engine, transmission, suspension, rims, wheels, etc. are all intact. My ? is can I take a rolling zx3 shell and do a direct drop in with all of my SVT parts? Any complications I'm just not seeing? They didn't modify the frame or anything to handle the horses or anything did they?...i ask because a zx3 frame is easy to come by then a SVT is.......thx

yup sure is. just look up svt swap and you should be able to find enough information.

Sure, just grab the motor, transmission and ECU. Everything should be able to be transferred over without any problems.

Well looks like I am, right now tho the main thing i need is a rolling shell... Once i get that an started ill start posting pics and showing what new improvements ill do. I'm think of getting a RS body kit going on especially when i can take time on it.

Good luck with finding the RS parts as they aren't made anymore. That means if someone has parts they can charge an arm and a leg for it.

Well if thats the case you might as well buy a wrecked RS and have it shipped to you and do the complete conversion.
