  1. What car do i ask for when i order the engine rubber mounts for the DETT or for the matter any other engine parts? I'm gonna kustom fab. the mounts and support brackets. Any suggestions??? If i 'm not running a hood and since its a hot rod would placing the ICs behind the rad. be ok? maybe with a slim fan.

  2. Ya the whole setup only cost $1000 can, which in my opion isn't much at all. I've hada few ppl in the bast on this forum try to tell me not to bother and lol i don't like ppl telling me i can't or should not do things unless it for an actual valid reason :D, lol that would be a dam fast dunebuggy, I'm juts finishing up the body right now, but i will post the pics soon. Any ideas on how to mount the engine securely, I.e. no stress cracks later on and so forth? The real good thing about the motor is its a little bit shorter then the SBC thus give me more leg room in he cockpit. Plus i think a hot rod with an IC sitting out in front of a rad will look kick [@ZZ] p[lus the two turbos if i did my measurements right will stick out just past the hood and will draw fresh col air and it will look awesome with the filters sticking out of both sides of the engine bay.

  3. I want to put a 30DETT into my hot rod, 1927 model T. I just want to make sure i am going to have all the parts i need. It is a full kustom car and I want to do something different. Please I don't want to hear it cannot be done or your better off with a SB. It will work perfectly for my application and i love the look/perfomance of this engine over the SB



    Engine with turbos exhaust manifold


    transfer drive shaft

    Wiring harness



    mounting brackets



    Is there anything else i will need or that would help. Also where is the best place to get a wiring harness and ECU? Does Mega squirt work for this engine? if not what other Stand alone system would you recommend?



  4. Fuel economy isn't a must at the moment i was just wonder what the MPG would be. I know the engine would easily stick out and in fact i mean them too. I would situate the turbos outside the car so it works for me. Just wondering the exact measurement of the Intake manifold see if that will fit under my current hood, lol besides I could always go hood less. Thanks for the the idea on the other engine. I have another car that would be perfect for.

  5. I want to put a VQ30 in my car but i can't decide on which one. It will be daily driver/weekend track so i want something dependable and moderately good on gas. I want power, but i want reliably more then power. Is the TT reliable? Does anyone have the actual engine size dimensions of both the VQ30 and the TT. I'm not sure if it will fit in my engine bay. I did some searching but i didn't come up with anything. I have a V8 SBC in it right now. I want more power potential.

  6. I just wanted to do something different plus i have future plans for building. I just wanted a list of stuff i would need for the swap for number crunching and for my own knowledge. I want to play with a nissan engine as i have worked with SBC, SBF, KL mazda engine, so i just wanted to try. So what would i need for the swap??

  7. I've been think about this mod for awhile and was wondering if anyone has do it before? As well what would i need for the job? I want to get a 1980 - 87 chevy pick up long box possibly cab 1/2. Is this enough engine for this truck? I will be doing every thing myself and am very capable. I don't want a race truck just a good reliable DD thats good on Gas and can haul a good load.


    I know i need:


    fabricated motor/tranny mounts??



    shift linkage


    change my drive shaft

    Axle still good?


    anything else i need?


    I don't know if the power steering pump on the VQ is good enough for the Pick up or if a i need a pathfinder rad or can i just keep a stock chevy rad. I have alot of exp. with the SBC and the KLZE mazda engines but this would be my first nissan VQ project. I found the SBC to be a pig on gas and the ZE/De mazda to be unreliable. All my research has pointed towards the VQ..so here i am. Any idea is welcome
