Swapping engine on G37xs

Postby Troggy » Wed Jan 09, 2019 8:22 pm

So I got caught in a flash flood and my engine came to a grinding halt. After having it looked at by a couple garages, both saying I need a new motor, I’ve decided to take it on myself. My uncle has a decent garage with a nice rolling hoist. Couple questions before I dive into this project.
Does the car actually have to get lifted off of the motor or will it come out from the top?
Mine is a 2010. Are Ther certain years only, that will work?
Do I need to worry about the brain?
Where is a good place to buy a reasonably priced used motor?
Thanks Nicoclub, any other thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Changing the engine is one thing. But I'd be seriously worried about the wiring and circuit boards throughout the car.
