Hey everyone new to the site I don't have my 620 just yet but I am going to purchase one soon im just trying to get a game plan together so i know im not walking in blind so I decided that if i found a 620 with no motor or a bad motor i wanted something to cruise but be able to make a run or two but still be street legal and i know alot of people have been putting different make motors in these little trucks but i wanted to still within the same manufacture and i have decide to go with the vq35de motor and drive train same as in the 350z, maxima, altima and many other cars by nissan but what i was wondering is that if its the same engine in all them cars does that mean all i have to do is turn the motor facing front to back and get a rwd tranny and rearend to make this implant work????? Ok I think it would be an awsome ride if it can be done so give me your feed back everyone and let me know your thoughts expert advise and what not and i dont know if this has even been done bfore if so can you guys let me know and if not and this is an original idea dont be afraid to use it i wont be mad lolol!!! :chuckle:

welcome man... to do the swap properly you're gonna want the RWD engine out of something like a 350 Z... swapping the transverse engines the right way is crap basically

also... you can make mounts for the engine... as well as tranny... but you will most likely need a custom driveshaft in order to get the overall length right

hope that helps..
