View Full Version : I can't be the only one who doesn't know: Drivetrane

Can I??
I'm asking what exactly the "drivetrane" refers to. Is that just axle and differential, or does it include the tranny?
Yes yes, how can I not know, but hey. They say that the only stupid questions are the ones left un-asked... ... or maybe I'm just trying to make myself feel better. http://www.freshalloy.com/

Regarding the drivetrane, does it need to be swapped out for the SR20 Drivetrane, or does the stock KA drivetrane (driveline?) bolt up to the SR transmission?

Fanchew and please excuse the ignorance.

I do beleive that the Ka can be bolted to the Sr with minimal modifications. The drivetrain consists of the parts transfering the power from the engine to the rear wheels. The transmission is in fact part of the drivetrain.

The drivetrain is usually comprised of everything between the engine and the wheels that in some way contributes to making the car move. Axles, differentials, drivetrains, transmissions, and clutch assemblies can all be put into this category (some people omit clutch & tranny). The SR should work with the standard drivetrain, as long as you have the SR tranny. Check SRswap.com for more details.

Thank you for being so mature about it, I feel enlightened w/ out feeling stupid. (what a paradox that would be)

So the consensus is that the SR engine and tranny will bolt up to the rest of the drivetrane that's left over from the old KA?
