You can make any motor fit that you want, they pretty much all require motor mounts to be welded in.

Most people opt for the auto trans because it's easiest to drive. It may also be harder to get the stick where you want it on a manual. Putting a 350 and a T56 in a 240Z would probably put the stick shift way far back of where it would have been originally. Since autos are mostly selected by cable or adjustable metal rods, it's easier to install.

Chev powered Z's are common throughout the world, well almost.
♣Zen31ZR♣ is right about the mounts etc...

I don't know about you guys but im more interested the hi tech v8's like Q45's etc...

You might have seen these pics posted on the net before, if not take a close look. It's a 240Z with a twin turbo Q45 V8 720 HP. :thumbup:
