OK. Since I jokingly suggested an LS1 Z car club I feel compelled to follow this thread.

My car is a 1972 240Z.

The motor is a 2002 LS1 from a Camaro SS with 20,000 miles. It has the LS6 block. The motor is stock.

The transmission is a T56 6 speed from a 2001 Trans - Am WS6

I used the JCI (Johns Cars Inc.) install components. JCI motor mounts, A/C setup, driveshaft,fuel pump, speedo signal converter, etc.

I used the JTR Trans Crossmember and Air intake system.

I had Speartech make a custom wiring harness and reprogram the computer.

I have the Sanderson Headers.

I started on the swap in May of 2004 and hope to have it back on the road this spring but no later than August in time for the international Z Car Convention.

The car has coilovers on all 4 corners with eibach springs, camber plates, Tokiko 5 way adjustable inserts,strut tower bars,poly bushings, etc.

Brakes are soon to be upgraded along with adding a 4 point rollbar and sub frame connectors.

That's all I can think of for now.

Oh yeah, I am in Maryland near Washington, DC

Lets hear from the rest of you so we can have a good resource for the newbees.


Updates since I posted this so long ago.

Car is 90% or more completed. It has been on the road since August 2005 and I have driven and enjoyed it for about 10K miles.

Can now has a Q45 VLSD with MMS adapters, MMS 13" big Brake Kit, New NOS Dash with speedhut EL lighted stock gauges, Vintage Air AC/Heat system, Leather Recaro Seats and 16" x 7" Panasports.

I have had it on a dyno and it made 340RWHP and 365 RWT. I have run it down the 1/4 mile track 2 times. Both runs were tracktion limited and I ran a 12.88 at 109mph.

I have done 7 track days with the car and it has performed fantastic. The car is extremely reliable and also gets great fuel mileage. I got 30+ Miles per gallon on a 900 mile trip.

I love my LS1 powered Z car. This is the way Datsun should have made them.

Almost there…
’97 BMW M-3 sedan, Daily driver.
LSx M3 build thread...

LM7 w/ported heads, ’00 Vette cam, LS6 springs, LS1 intake, WOLF V-500 Engine management, T-56 trans.

After the initial bugs get worked out, will be building mild 6.0L, seriously considering the single plane crank in the 6.0L block.
