I don't want to sound mean, but only 230hp from a 4.1 liter V8? I think it's an awesome project though. That kind of car would get mad respect here in the 'States.Joel said:
Anything's possible! I've seen the infamous blue 280Z with twin turbo 4.5 liter V8 swap. Woof.Nismo14-180 said:well at least we know its possible now
I'm more than convinced that Silvia would look awesome with a nice functional hoodscoop, what a beast...Too Bad he's only Dyno'd for 230WHP though...:Sbridrive55 said:Anything's possible! I've seen the infamous blue 280Z with twin turbo 4.5 liter V8 swap. Woof.
Well he said it had a 60/40 weight ratio...the 240's have 50/50 weight ratio stock I believe so not too much differently.Nismo14-180 said:I wonder how it would handle?
Your dynos read the same. The HP measure is not the same. The discrepency isn't that large, though. That engine does have awesome torque though. A V8 would sound badass in a 240SX. I was telling my friend Kyle about my engine swap plans, and he told me that he would give me his Ford 429 for free if I could fit in my 240SX. That's 490lb/ft of torque...Joel said:Our dynos read a lot less than the US ones. You are all also forgetting the torque of that engine. Apparently it sounds awesome
