The VK56 is expensive. The VH45 is cheap.
Cheap means more Moo-lah can go into go-fast parts.

Well lets see, VK56DE project has a few minor issues...
1- the VK56DE is EXPENSIVE.
2- NO I MEAN NO aftermarket support for it.
3- Its a great engine.... But its better suited to the trucks, my dad has a Titan, its quick for a truck, but its VERY low end power not much past 4K.

I disagree about the aftermarket support. I have seen way more parts come out for the 56 over the 45. Yes everything for that is expensive but any kind of major swap into a Z32 is.
I have installed a stillen supercharger with secondary injectors and the piggyback that came with it onto a customers QX56, and I have to say that it kinda scared me on the road that something that big could move the way it did.
I am all for the swap. I know it would be awesome. After seeing the RB26 swap on RBZ32 that tayfuu did I have confidence that the 56 should be no problem.
Remember this site is about thinking outside the box.

GO FOR IT!!!:-P

Gotta disagree with the "no aftermarket" statement. VK56 certainly has the best aftermarket support of any Nissan V8. That's not saying much but there are supercharger kits, JWT cams, etc.

The VK56DE is one helluva an engine. I love mine in my Titan. I've surprised people on how I can make it move. Now if only the engine wasn't expensive...mmmm, engine swap...

I dont mean as no aftermarket support for the VK56DE in general. But For the VK56DE swap. I know there is no support for the VH either for swaps. But there is more support for it than the 56. I love both engines. I find both to be MONSTERs... but to me the VK56DE is what the Big block is to domestics... I will stick with my small block engines.

This adapter should be for the VK56 to 6-speed from what I've seen. It does say 5-speed but I believe this adapter was made for that guy running the VK56 in the drift 350Z. Looking at the pattern, I'm pretty confident its for the newer 350Z 6-speed... I'd double check though.

After meeting with some experts this weekend and showing them my research.. I came up with more aftermarket mods for a vk56 than a vh45. They agreed for me to do the vk56de swap. Also on another note some guy is gonna run a LS1 computer with his vk56de,he said he was going to set his up for paddel shifting..

PS
I use to own a '06 titan .. it was not stock. It was the best and fastest truck i ever owned just sucked down gas too much 12.3mpg highway.

Planning on going TT, T, or n/a? Any idea about hood clearance or will you have to make a new manifold?

Does a butt dyno require the insertion of any type of special sensor?

Beg to differ on the Aftermarket support!

We have a Drift team Dropping the VK into a G35 with ITB's and mated to the 6 speed gear box!

Is anyone interested in an Adapter Plate?

Trust me it's being worked on night and day just about, trying to get the Car ready for the Drift Season!

Plates will be in the $650 to $750 range, depending on a first run batch of # of people interested!

Clutch/flywheel options is the issue at the moment!!

Your going to use the 350Z 6 speed? If so why? It's a POS if you ask me. Even the updated ones are kind of shaddy. They aren't a bullet proof tranny thats for sure. Wouldn't you be better off building an adapter for say a T56?

I see your point! and your probably correct on that from a strength stand point, Butt!!!!!!!!! cost is always a Factor!

First, we are just building the Adapter plate not doing the engineering, second this swap is expensive enough as it is, and if the person has the transmission already this helps to reduce the cost of the swap!
