1JZ and Getrag 260 E30

Hello...
I just bought an e30 (85 325e) With Getrag 260
I want to make it a street legal drift car...
I am thinking 1JZ and our biggest challenge is to mount the G260 to the 1JZ... Not sure if there is adapters for this setup or i have to cut and weld the bell housing !!!
Looking for advice...
Thanks a million and happy New year

Any particular reason for keeping the 260 & not going a toyota box like r154? Not sure if there is an adapter out there for it.

My buddy is doing the same swap and is using a toyo tranny. I don't know if an adapter plate is made for a 1jz to a getrag 260.

The Toyota tranny is too expensive...
Also will have to modify the driveshaft too...

Would still, need to modify the driveshaft with a 260 & the 1j.

You could look to get a custom adapter plate made to suit, but that will weigh into the costs so its a 6 of one, a half dozen of the other
