I am thinking of a project car and legally registering it as a daily driven car.In various car magazines I have seen a few small block V8's fitted.Has anyone removed the straight 6 and fitted a V8? What other modifications did you have to do?

Thanks.

IIRC they were predominantly the LS1 swaps...I'll check a mag I have that has info on the swap itself. It can be done although I dont see why considering the potency of existing Nissan Z engines.

I think you should just modify your engine man, the Z engine will last longer than any american engine you find. I would just turbo it.

Yes you can it has been done alot. I would recommend an LS1 swap or SBC 350. Hybridz.org has all the information you need.
