    Making one of my two 240z's into a hybrid V-8 with an LS1. I'm not a mechanic so I could use any help I could get. I'll also have some parts available to sell or trade as I get going. The 1971 I'm keeping original(E31 Heads) but I need to know about so much that I don't know where to start. Rob a bank, I guess...NOT but I do need any help that anyone would be kind enough to share!
  1. I have a couple of 240z's, 71 & 72. I have decided to go with an LS1 350 or 400 short block. I would really apprieciate any suggestions in reference to: A good Manual Transmission for engine( something that fits fairly close), Also any help with a Better Suspension to deal with any additional weight and for overall saftey of myself along with other drivers on the road. I'm not a car mechanic so I really need A-Z help(no Pun Intended), what I really want is my "dream car" to happen and just like most of us, I'm on a limited budget. Thank you all for ANY & ALL help or suggestions to help my Dream come true!! Digginmyz Waiting on 72 to be shipped but will post pics when she arrives so I'll have an archive to remember this experience by!

      I have the cars, now I'm searching for information to help me with this task.

  3. Hey back, I have the same deal as you. I own a 71 & 72 240z's and want to v-8 one. I got a quote of $12,000 turnkey to put in an LS1 350 shortblock. That's in Dallas, Tx. As far as buying the 240....paid $1850 for the 71 in 1995 & just paid $2400 for the 72, but the 72 spent 35 years in a barn so little rust. The biggest thing on a v-8 conversion is if the engine metal has rust, don't but it. Not for a v-8 conversion. I just talked to a man who doe's this and he said if there's rust, you need to pass it up. I need lots of help here & money Good luck, Donnie
