What is this discussion about?
This forum is to ask questions or enjoy bragging rights about swapping out your stock engine for a more powerful one, be it the same make or from another make of car. This forum is NOT for descriptions of replacing same with same merely to replace a blown up motor. Use the Maintenance & Repair Board for that kind of swap.

I recently saw a 1978 280ZX with a VG45 swap....in Japan, in a magazine, of course, but how cool is that?

Here's an early Z car with a Chevy 350. Some say blasphemy (I tend not to like to do this to "classics") but there is that 270HP for your right foot.

That is very cool. That all you would want to I bet
#9 of 486 I've seen several very well

executed Chevy small block swaps - they can look great, too, and not have major issues for handling if you go with aluminum heads, electric fans, relocated battery, and other weight saving ideas.
I tried like crazy to convince my youngest son to do a 350 (or Ford 5.0) swap on his 1990 Nissan 240SX, since there are kits for both, but he was all about that JDM thing...
