I've been waiting for permission from the heiarchy to post about this..
With the VQ35DE swap kits finished for the Spec-V, I've had a LOT of interest in making a similar kit for the B13/B14 chassis. I will need a donor vehicle to prototype the first mount kit and get the car running. I will most likely offer a bolt-in kit, as I have done for the Spec-V.. however, there will be a few more parts that will be needed to make it work. Here's what I plan using for the prototype car..
VQ35DE (maxima/altima) engine
VQ30DE 5spd transmission
VQ35DE Pathfinder throttle body
VQ30DE 96-97 ECU
VQ30DE Maxima engine harness
VQ30DE crank pulley
Custom mount adaptors with grade 8 bolts/nuts/washers
Spec-V axles (not 100% sure on this yet)
JWT programmed ECU (timing/fuel maps optimized/7500rpm limiter)
2.5" mandrel VRS exhaust
2004+ Maxima MAF
The axles are the ONLY thing that I'm not 100% sure about.. I have to do some measuring. The VQ30 trans uses a larger diameter axle than the SR20 gearbox.. so it's necessary to upgrade.
Anyway, whoever steps up to the plate, will get all of the above, installed in the car, turn-key for 4500.00. This setup will make around 250whp and 240wtq.
I will sell a mount only kit, for those who just want to get the engine/trans into the car. It will feature mount adaptors, modified Nissan brackets, grade 8 bolts, axles, and whatever other modified parts are needed. I will have pricing/details as they come.
Here's some pics of the VQ35 install kit and install into the Spec-V
I am looking to do this in the next 2 months.. as time permits. The donor car(s) will be needed for approx. 4 weeks. PM me if you are interested. Feel free to post questions here..
