Re: 4age black top engine adaptor plate for 1600 vitara auto

Don't mean to rain on your idea, but it'd probably be cheaper to stick a SR20 and 4wd wingroad box in it then get a 4age to bolt up to a vitara box. And yes... I do mean mounting it east west like it is in the wing road and just getting the inner axles cut and swapped over. Cheers for your input.. ...

Not sure on the 31" sizing, but a few years ago the 35" sizing had the simex at 35.5 and the silverstone at 34.75. This has been rectified and they are now identical, so possibly its the same deal with your situation especially so if you have older silverstones ;-) If that's the case it s...
