MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - nissan 300zx TT engine?
|has anyone ever done or considering doing an engine swap with a TT 300zx engine? i've always loved the smoothness of nissan engines and they seem to be built to a very high level. would it fit? is it significantly lighter than stock? anyone thought about it? why do the musical acts on saturday night live always annoy me?|
|Have you ever looked under the hood of a twin turbo ZX! There is not one inch of unused space under the hood of those things! In 24 years of being a mechanic it is the most pain in the a$& car, I have ever worked on. There! That being said, it is a strong performer and fun to drive. I'm sure a lot of the extra "stuff" Nissan puts under there, could be eliminated. It would be a tight fit, but anything can be done with enough time and money!|
I usually fall a sleep by the time the musical act comes on!
|I think that last time I measured one, it was way too wide.|
|ahhh, ok. thanks for the info. my original plan is to put a turbo or supercharged rotary 13b engine in it. but i was curious as to what other interesting engines might fit in fairly easily. i guess the rotary may be the most fun choice for me.|
|How about BMW straight six?|
........Waiting for the abuse???
|Wildcat U.K. got 6 litre Rover v8s now, so rest are waste of time & space , but you need big $. STEVE|
