Maybe he's getting busy with the conversion, and will be back very shortly to tell us its running already. OHH, and he's coming back to show off his OIC's. :blink:


We all know that this conversion bolts right in, should only take a couple afternoons.

Even the easiest engine swaps can be difficult .... i am on the final stretch of a sbc swap in my 240z ... lots and lots of custom stuff done by myself ... its all the small things that make up the big picture ....not just mounts :)


These are just some things to consider ... :) .. u don't have to know how to do all of this, but if u know people that can this will prove beneficial ... other things like final exhaust routing and driveline shortening/ balancing i would probably leave to pro's ;) ... Ecu wiring as well if u don't feel comfy ... shop will charge $$$ for this ... so find a member or a small time local guy w... u should be able to do yourself if you research research, and research some more...


U can do this, ,, just expect to spend more $$$ ,,, more time than u think .. and aways expect comprimises to be made as well as option b and c ... when option a does not work
