Re: Engine swaps we like and hate.

I enjoyed my 350 V8 in my X-Nissan 240 SX!

Yeah don't get that one? The Supra comes with a great engine already, same with the RX7, yet I've seen the Nissan in an RX7 as well. Though I did like it when they put one in a 350Z, as well as a 300z. Love the SR20 in a 240SX as well. A Supra though doesn't really need it. What I would like to see though is a lowered Titan with an SR20.

My favorite swap seen would be an LS1 into a 69 Camaro

I'd love to see the new 427ci LS7 in one of those now

I'm not a fan of any swaps(or engines) in FWD cars... a sideways engine is just.. wrong

Re: Engine swaps we like and hate.

probably the two coolest swaps i've seen in person were a DeLorean with the cadilac northstar V8, and a BBC in a porsche 928 .

Re: Engine swaps we like and hate.

about the confusing engine codes, this site gives pretty much all but the very newest nissan codes. i dunno any for other manufacturers that have it laid out like that.

i kinda wonder if that sr20 -> supra ment that a supra engine replaced the sr20 in the silvia...?

Re: Engine swaps we like and hate.

Not much of a truck guy but some of my favorite swaps are ford 302's in a ranger or a 350 in a S10. They seem so fitting, to me it seems that it should have been offered from the factory.

Bad swap: CRX engine into a riced out Geo Metro coupe

Somewhat good swap: Turbocharged 2.0L Rotary into a 1700 pound Toyota Starlet - a 7 Seconder

Good swap: 1000HP methanol-driven engine on a school bus. That's right, a school bus. Mid to high 9's in the 1/4 mile, while at a 30 degree angle.

Here's a video of the bus:

Re: Engine swaps we like and hate.

I love the 240SX SR20 swap, its the engine that car was meant to have... F**k that KA24 Truck engine business., a Swap I HATE, i absoloutley despise anything but a rotary in an rx-7 (makes the car handle like a bag of ass), and i hate to see such an amazing peice of engineering go to waste by putting something with ONE underhead camshaft in it.
