Madkatt44 Posted April 29, 2008 Share Posted April 29, 2008 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: Engine(VQ35DE) fabricated motor/tranny mounts?? rad??? Tranny..AT shift linkage CPU?? 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 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
