Just looking at the new parts list it would be possible to convert your 12R5.1 Inline Version with minimal parts needed.

From what i can see you will need

1 x 4700 Motor Mount Bulkhead
1 x 4701 LR Bulkead
1 x 4702 Motor Mount Brace
1 x 4703 Upper Pod Plate
1 x 4704 Chassis Brace
2 x 4705 Front Bulkhead
1 x 4707 Side Sprig Retainer
1 x 4708 Damper Tube
1 x 4709 Damper Tube Shaft
1 x 8828 Cup Set
1 x 31322 Arm Mount Bushing

I think that is all (someone correct me if there is anything missing)

Kind regards,

Chris

Look at it this way you can off set the price by selling your .1 stuff to someone who just has a 5

You can upgrade a little at a time. If you were to install the damper tubes you would have a very similar car to the 12R5.2. Then you can add the other items over time to bring it up to full spec.

Hi Hi,

I noticed that the rear lower pod plate got a different part number.
What is the diff ?

R5.2 part number is 4692, R5.1 is 8511
