VK56 swap into a convertible Z32

Recommended Posts

Well I have finally started, I own a 1994 Z32 manual and convertible. I decided to do the VK56 swap solly on the whim that I haven't found very many people doing it. 

My hopes: 

- VK56 swap

-Manual trans rebuilt

-Stand alone engine management

- Possible turbo setup after installation 

- and all kinds of other modifications, money and skills pending.


Of course all and any feed back is appreciated. I know some people are delving into this as I speak, a few of them on here even.

Got my trans adapter from Collins had to clean out some threads on it and cut out one of the mounting holes off for another trans. Wouldn't clear the starter.


Had to clearance the bellhousing..... not very good, after mock up I will return to clean this up.


For even more space I had to clearance the starter as well. Hopefully this doesn't effect the structural strength that's suppprting the starter gear


After this attempt I found out that the oil pan has to come off in order to install.
