I am looking to get a 240z or 260z from 1970-73' and would like to do a complete resto-mod.
I am limited on knowledge and experience as well as tools and space. I would like this car to have the reliability of a daily driver, though it will most likely be used as a weekend car. I am looking for a z with minimal rust that runs, i would like to upgrade the suspension, fix any body issues and interior issues, then finally swap the engine.
What would be my best option for an engine swap?
Things I am looking for in this car.
-Street legal in New York
-preferably na but not opposed to turbo if it is more reliable
- Have it professionally done
- quick linear throttle response
I have been doing a lot of research on swaps but could not come to a conclusion. Which engine/tranny combo would be best for my goals and what is a ballpark price range i would be looking at. I understand the price could vary greatly, but considering I need to buy the engine and all components necessary for the swap and pay a professional to install it.
