Yet another LS 260z swap :)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I was thinking of starting a thread about my LSA swap but i know there are several but if you are interested i'll post😀.

I have a 260Z bought three years ago, drove it with the Inline 6 for two years.

I started with the brakes as they were not so good so to speak.....

I bought Porsche boxter S calipers from a 2016 and discs from a BMW F30 335i made new brackets and twin master cylinders.

At first i made new hubs in aluminium but have now changed to hubs from a S13 as i had some flex that made my brakes a bit unpredictable 😱.

As i'm half way in in this swap things that i post is mods that i already have done :).

Another thing i did when i did the brakes was building new rear control arms, narrowed down track with with 16mm/5/8" to accommodate modified Rota wheels.

That included shorter half shafts, narrowed in my lathe, they were hard so i have to buy some expensive inserts/tools.

I also made a jigg to get angles correct when welding.

They are now adjustable.

I'm going polyurethane bushings as i want this to be a fast road car and not a track car only.

With them i could go with the R180 for last summer to sort out the brakes.

With the now mounted R200 i have to make new ones again🤣.

With new tires and shocks (BC) i decided to swap out the seats as i was all over the inside 😁.

Wheels were Rota RBs that i widened rear 3/4 and front is going to be a tad narrower to get a proper scrub radius.

Tires are Nankang 255/40-17 and front is 225/45-17.

Painted gold for that 70ies look😎

Rear are 9.5 wide and front will be  7.5.

Front hubs are Nissan S13 (modified struts) as i got some not so nice feel in my break pedal, had some flex in the old set up that made the travel in the pedal is a bit longer after a hard turn.

The seats are Cobra Nogaro, super help from these guys.

Comments are welcome good or bad.


Have a nice weekend👍

i drove the 260 in to my garage in October and decided to do the swap😎

Old engine out and the new in :), nope....

The LSA has been started on a pallet to see that everything works ok.

ECU is a E67 from a 2012 Camaro ZL1 and i added a FPCM to PWM control fuel pumps.

The radiator and fan is from a Corvette C7, also PWM controlled.

Homemade 180° headers.

As the steering rack had some play in the bushings i decided to get a power steering rack, i went with a Vauxhall Corsa rack, flipped upside down and mounted in front of the cross member with homemade brackets, seems to work😀

Brackets on the pic is temporary plastic ones, needed to put the rack in the lathe for small adjustments.


Have a nice evening

Happy Easter to you all:),


Steering rack was moved to the left 5mm to make more room for the primary tubes, new extension made to the right side.

Most of the primary tubes are now welded, stainless is a pain as they tend to bend in their own way....😐.

Some reinforcements are made around the hatches in the fender.

As battery is moved to the rear i'm using this place for expansion bowl and fuse box for the engine plus coils.

on the left side there will be clutch master cylinder and coils and maybe washer fluid bowl.
