    Default new 240z build and swap

    Im brand new to the Datsun scene and i have a 240z. The car is me and my dads project and were planning to build it pretty much from the ground up. What i was wondering was if anybody had any helpful hints, build price, or horror stories on swapping a SR or RB series motor into the car (this wont be happening until everything else has been rebuilt). Any info would help, Thanks!

    Hello DDash85, try the search function, you may be able to find some info on the engine swaps you mention. Also, www.hybridz.org might have more info, folks on that site are more into the modified Z's and engine swaps. Most people on this site tend to keep their cars stock.

    What kind of shape is you car in? I am rebuilding 1970 and you can put more $ into the car than it will be worth. Im doing it because I will keep the car. I also have lots of extra parts if you need some.
