Well I wanted to do something to set my Z out there from all the other Z's. A few days ago I purchased a SR from a friend for a REALLY good price. All my mounts (tranny & engine) should be here soon, garrett GT35R turbo, injectors, gaskets and drive shaft in about a month. were lookin at about 500 hp or so. Cant wait to get this thing on the road. So excited I thought id share!

Don't say I have heard anyone doing this to a Z31. I know a tuner company in Japan did an SR20DET swap into a Z32 a good number of years ago. IIRC, they claimed the SR had better potential than the VG30DETT.

If I'm not mistaken, the VG30DETT holds nissans top power numbers....

The sr20det into a Z32 doesn't seem to make sense to me, it'd be like putting a b16 into a H22 prelude. you could do it, but why?

I'd think the SR20 is quite a bit lighter than the VG30 though...you will definitely free up some space under the hood.

yea well i got the motor fully built from a friend who has $$$$ to play with so i couldnt pass it up. Yea japan cars have done everything but here in the US there hasnt been many. if i was gonna do an rb swap it would have been the 26 and i would have done the AWD conversion too but i passed. im more than happy with the decision im making and if i had the money i would do an rb swap

I have a friend looking to do a swap in his 87 z31. He can't make up his mind on what engine to drop in. Alot of people drop chevy 350's in there or the simple vg33e or the rb25 or even the harder to put in vg30dett. It would be cool to see a sr z31. yeah, please post pics when it's done.
