For the most part, it’s not really worth it to try to convert from one of these types of engines to another. The Rev-Up engines have a variable exhaust valve timing, different ECUs/wiring harnesses, different internals, and a different intake plenum. The HR does not swap easy into either of the DE engine places either, and doing so would cost quite a bit of money.

Most of those engines in rogo's list won't work. There are many different versions of the VQ35DE. For starters, anything that is transversely mounted, as in the Maxima and Altima, will not work due to the bellhousing patterns being completely different (meaning the transmission won't bolt up) and the motor mount provisions on the block are different. In 2005, there were two different 3.5L engines used in the 350Z, one with single CVTCS and one with Dual CVTCS (you probably have the latter). Regardless, the following vehicles would be your choices. The first grouping has vehicles available with the single CVTCS, however the G35 and 350Z both were available with the optional dual CVTCS as per the grouping below.

These vehicle that came w/ single CVTCS share the same long block assembly (block and heads):

INFINITIFX352003-2008
INFINITIG352003-2007
INFINITIM352006-2008
NISSAN350Z2003-2007

The following vehicles w/ the dual CVTCS option share the same long block assembly (block and heads:

INFINITIG352004-2006
NISSAN350Z2004-2007
