View Full Version : S13 vs S14 crossmembers

I was wondering if anyone knew if a S13 front crossmember would bolt into a S14?

There was a discussion on another board about this a few months ago and I argued in favor, however it turns out the S14 crossmember I had was tweaked, so the bolt holes were close enough to mate. With a straight unit the S14 is slightly wider.

Crap. Got a link to that discussion?

uh, I've personally put an S14 crossmember into an S13 with no problems. only difference is that the power steering hose bracket bolt locations were different. and RB crossmembers bolt into S13s and S14s alike so I'm gonna say they should be the same

Now you guys are making me doubt myself again.

I'll measure both tommorrow at the shop. The kid on zilvia I told that they would crossover cried for another 10 posts about how I lied to him and made him waste more time than he should have, so I went back and noticed that it was tweaked from the hit, figured that was the reason. If they are the same, does anybody feel like a trip to bash a kid's skull in for being an idiot? I'll provide the food.

Looking in the s13 & s14 FSM, the frame rail-frame rail measurment for both cars is exactly the same, 768mm.

No advantage unless you only have one or the other. The PS line mounts are different but that's not really an issue.
