Good luck to Everyone! There are some NICE cars here!



This car is the very first of its kind. I took a 2002 Maxima (5.5Gen) and swapped in a 2009 Maxima (7th gen)VQ35 into the car which is now called the 5.7 Gen Maxima.

Its not a ordinary swap, the 09 VQ has VQ35HR heads and various improvements over the older FWD VQ's.


My good friend purchased a 09 Maxima a few years ago, the first thing I did was look under the hood. I said that's the motor Ill swap one day! In August 2010 my car developed a rod knock. So I parked it and started the planning of the swap. In May 2011 I had the 09 VQ and was in the process of swapping. It was not untill the end of July 2011 till it actually ran.



First run/drive

2002 Maxima w 2009 Maxima VQ35 engine swap first run- YouTube
