    It would just be too tight of a fit. Already looked into and no one wants to tackle it on unless you give them 'card de blanche' on your credit card with about 25k limit and your ride for the next 3-6 months possibly. There would be too many expensive one off parts needed,

    Internals. :mad:

    No luck for the VK on big powah... not until they start making some better rods and pistons. Heck, has the VK's internals been really tested yet?

    Internals would definitely be needed if going TT to lower the higher compression ratio on the VK to get more boost. But the VK internals are much more solid then the VQ out of the factory. But it would still be a good call to upgrade the rods, pistons and possibly cams.

    Nissan VK engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia@@AMEPARAM@@/wiki/File:Nissan_VK56DE_001.JPG" class="image" title="VK56DE"><img alt="VK56DE" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/93/Nissan_VK56DE_001.JPG/250px-Nissan_VK56DE_001.JPG"@@AMEPARAM@@commons/thumb/9/93/Nissan_VK56DE_001.JPG/250px-Nissan_VK56DE_001.JPG

    I decided to do a search on our titanium values that the VQ does not have:
    Q1: How do the VK's heads hold up to boost with their titanium valves and aluminum lifters?
    It stands to reason to use the perfectly fine VK heads with their lower rotating mass and rebuild the beefier VH shortblock, but it would be good to know whether or not the VK heads are a weak link.

    Is the 300ZX stronger than the G35 transmission? Found that interesting.

    Here is me dreaming again -- would a VK56 swap work? I think Stillen has a supercharger out there for it already.

    Should work. It should only be a matter of space issue. There was thoughts of doing this before but no one actually has taken the plunge.

    Is the VK56 the VK45 stroked?

    I don't think so. I have not heard of such. You may want to ask on a Titan forum.

    Wow, someone got one hell of a deal, but I doubt the seller actually sold it to him for the bid.
