'74 Datsun 620, Looking for tips for a potential vq35 swap

Postby razomike » Fri Jan 22, 2016 1:28 pm

Hi there, I have an old '74 Datsun 620. Potential engine swap with VQ35DE from 350z. Doing some research, I've found its a very difficult and expensive swap. That is well understood, but looking for some feedback on just doing a VQ35 into an old Datsun. Some have done it on old 510's and 240s, any guidance is appreciated.

So far, I know:
- Standalond Aftermarket ECU Needed
- Custom mounts needed
- Custom exhaust/headers needed
- Custom Oil Pan
- Fuel Pump/Line/Cell
- Custom radiator/fans
- Cutting needed (its paired with big 6-speed trans).

Thanks in advance.

I found this post on here...

This guy when beast mode on his 620, he cut our the front frame, hoping I don't have to go to that extent, if not SR20DET it is, rather than VQ35.
