    The engine bay is so ugly now :ugh:

    Look at all that gap. It just looks so bad compared to the Skyline's bay.

    Waste, they should have put real thought into it and turbo'd the 3.5. It's been done with great results.

    agreed. And not some damn truck motor, Honda tuned for "performance" :rolleyes:

    2900lbs is no bullshit either. I cant imagine what that would feel like with a high rev, boosty engine. :cool:

    :ugh:

    RB26 >>>>>>VQ by a landslide. It has NOT been done with great results. Greddy is the only company to have done it and it was rediculously expensive for such a little power increase.

    The V6 engine configuration is not the best engine to modify. Not enough bearings, have to buy 2 of everything, not balanced. Its an abysmal engine to mod.

    Where the fuck did you think the RB came from?

    Lets just say it wasn't always in super duper sports car.

    2900 lbs- ok..................


    how much $$ is the 350Z ?

    how much $$ is that swap ?


    race weight of my old Z06 with me in it... 3185 lbs. I weigh 210. do the math. just 100 lbs more.

    i wonder which car would be more reliable ? Z06 with mild mods or the hybrid 350Z.

    i wonder on the cost....

    hmm

    Truck motor? Why exactly is an rb26 better?

    Especially considering he's only putting a single turbo on there anyway, why not get an rb25 then?

    More money then sense. Still, good luck to him for whatever he was hoping to achieve.
