    Differences between EK3 and EK4 ??

    Hey,

    Looking at an EK3 chassis for a track car, but most aftermarket parts seem to only be for an EK4 or EK9. Soooo.... question is, will parts said to be for EK4 (coilovers, braces, ,brakes..etc...etc..) fit an EK3.
    I though it was just a different engine?
    Anyone with experience/knowledge? Not really after "I think so", cause I think so too .

    Cheers.

    Will you be buying a stock EK3 or one with a running gear conversion?

    Oh yea definately. I suppose the braces/brakes thing was dumb to ask. I was really just looking at EK coilover setups on lunch break and only seem to be EK4 and EK9. I'm sure the mounting is the same as both EK chassis as you say, maybe just setup different for balancing? But the EK4 coilover would still be correct for an EK3?

    EK4 coilovers will fit EK3. u might also want to get a bigger brake setup as u will be drums instead of discs in the rear AFAIK.

    all the same. 95% same chassis as ek4, maybe the ek3 is running smaller swaybars or none factory. but thats about it.

    Yeah everything I brought for my EK3 that was for EK4/EK9 fitted. Just be careful if its a NZ NEW EK3 your buying as some of the fittings and wiring is different to the JDM version
