Hello everyone! This is another one of those LSx build on a Budget. I will try my best to stay under $4,000 for a Stock 5.3L Truck LM7 Engine Swap into a nice $700 Dolla Z32.

Now a little about me since i know you are all Big Fans of mine and want to know every little thing about ME! Not new to the nissan world as i have worked on a friends Z32 and owned a 240sx, a Z31 and now a proud owner of a Sweet G35 sedan :3 im not a pro when it comes to engines but i at least know how to change the oil and a few other things.

 

Now off to a wonderful Adventure!

After getting home i tore strait into her, hood, front fenders, bumper, for a couple hours till had to take a nap for the night. i twisted the key off somehow but luckily part of the key stayed inside so now i just need a flathead to turn it on :

 the engine came out a few days later and for the first time pulling a VG30DE it sure was a lot of fun and confusing, but it is out along with a few other parts.

A little about the Car:

 

it is a 1990 300zx 2+2 Auto NA, Came with a Thrown Rod according to the previsions owner upon further inspection before buying i knew it was just a spun bearing.

He wanted $1000, I offered $700 and she was MINE!

 

came with 18 inch chrome wheels and pretty new tires, later i found out the complete exhaust system was custom minus the stock headers!

 

And not to mention the Stickers which add an extra 50HP.

 

Not going to keep these.
