1975 280Z LS1 Swap

Recommended Posts

What's up everyone, I am going to be swapping a LS1 engine along with a tr6060 transmission into my 1975 280Z. This is my first time doing a full engine swap, so it should be a fun time (hopefully). I'll be posting progress pics as I go along with the project. My plan is to have the car running by this summer of 2023. It's currently April 26 soo no pressure lol. I hope this thread can be another resource to anyone doing a similar swap. I plan on being as thorough as I possibly can!

The TR6060 uses a different tailhousing than the T56, so the mounting points will be different, but I'd imagine it would be fairly easy to adapt a T56 mount.


brackets like this are available: https://animalsspeedshop.com/products/gm-tr6060-transmission-mount-conversion-bracket

not sure if they actually match the T56 mount location, but should make it even easier.
