    Don't know I would really call that something different. More rare than others, but its been done quite a few times as well.

    There you go.

    And I know its in a S30 (240Z) but hey its in a Z. And it fits in a 300ZX. Also For you chevy LS-whatever fans. The LS engine is what 5.7L pushrod right? The Titan has a 5.6L DOHC engine, and noone has even thought about begining to uncork that beast. Seeing as it is a VK45DE with a stroker kit and some other fun stuff, but it lost the variable cam timing. Figure a VK56DE with VK45DE heads and then you have 400+ HP 450+ft.lb torque 6500RPM 5.6L V8. Made in JAPAN, so you know you wont have to replace everything when you start to bolt on parts.

    350 chevys are indestructable, more than anything Nissan has ever put out. More technology doesnt mean its faster, just more expensive. Ill put my money on an LS1 over any Nissan V8, period, and this is coming from someone who is incredibly sick of LS1 fanboys.

    the car now has a stock 350 in it, it used to have a built 358 but all the internals flew thru the oil pan at richmond.

    Or you can stop speculating and show me some real specs besides "400+hp and 450+tq". There isnt a japanese v8 yet that can outshine a gold ole american pushrod v8 in terms of cost, reliablility, and potential.

    Re: 300zx w/ V8 swap?

    This is a stupid conversation. It's as futile as the "LS1 vs rotary" debate. People like different things.

    I personally think that people who dump V8s into Zs have a little too much time on their hands...

    These numbers are under rated by Nissan because of the "gentelmans agreement between Japanese car manufacturers. (no car should produce more than 300HP) The actual numbers of the VH45DE are closer to 300HP and 330ft.lb torque.

    And this is just a little 4.5L with loads of upgrade room.

    Re: 300zx w/ V8 swap?

    Ya I worked with the guy that built it for about 5 years. Like somebody else said him and his son just mess around with it. The dude is a really good mechanic and a hella good body man . Seen him build some bad ass shit and fix some wadded ass up cars..I dont really like the hood scoop either but I think it had to be on there for the carb to clear not really sure
