Wink I also own a 350z.

I have a lot of cars, one of them is a 350z. I want to put a V8 in it. It's a 2004 with only 30,000 miles on the chassis. I have spent too much money on it to just have a gutted out car. It is completely stripped out with no sound deadening or any of that wussy stuff. I wanted to have a newer RWD drift car and jumped from S chassis to this.

Here are some pictures in no particular order.











VK56DE from a Nissan Titan. Looking for 8,000 RPMs with ITBs and headwork. Probably net 4-500hp. Not looking for peak power, just flat power. Welp, see ya!

Don't get too excited, it's on delay till I get a daily driver sorted out. I bought the Civic with whatever cash I had on me but I am giving it to my girlfriend next month. I am back on here because I want to buy another NA to daily. After I get that I am back on the Z33.

Default Re: I also own a 350z.

Still looking for a NA daily before I do any more work to the Z33. I can't decide if I just want to get the stock VK56 running to drive it sooner, or tear down completely for a higher horsepower build first. I have quite a while to figure this out so I guess it's not a big deal. I don't expect the car to run for a year or so.

Why keep the door brace if you have the door bars on the cage? Save some more weight

I am don't think it will be worth the weight decrease to make the doors that flimsy.

I am more afraid of cutting them off then being stuck with it if I didn't like it.

I have someone going to auto auctions for me to get a NB. After that is sorted out the V8 is getting an overhaul. Can't start work till I get a new daily though.

Yeah, it's my race car project. It's going to keep me smart and not go crazy with the Miata. I need to finish painting the interior of the Z some time soon but I never feel like it.
