VK56DE RWD Conversion :P

Well some of you may have remember awhile back I was going to do a RWD swap in the Altima. Well the time has come. Its going to be a long process and I'll update u all as much as I can. I ordered my VK56DE from Cali just yesterday that is being sent to E-Shift Performance. Then I'll be breaking down the motor and cleaning it up. I have already removed the whole frontend off the car and I am in the process grinding all the paint down to the bare metal in the engine bay. Just so you all know this isn't going to be a 2 month install job...lol. Its going to take a few months to a year or so. So stay tuned!







Oh yea!!! VK56DE!!!

Wow... good luck with that. If you pull it off, imagine the opinions you'll have. Twin turbos, super charger, AWD. Keep us posted with your progress.

Why? Why not do an engine swap into a G or 350Z?

That's kind of my point. The Altima is not a great car and is certainly not a sports car. It isn't worth putting more than a few thousand in upgrades in as things fail. It's a complete waste of money imo. Why not have just bought a real sports car in the first place?

But, since it's his money and he wants to do it, I will say no more and I hope it works out.
