I want one! Do you have any info about weight and weight distribution?
Is the RB heavier than the 350z motor?

RB26 is definitely heavier than a VQ, and longer so the weight is higher and further forward so technically speaking its a downgrade in every sense - yet somehow still very cool, nice fit too :) Should be heaps of fun, is it a standard RB26?

I can spot standard injectors, good transplant. don't mind one of these as a daily driver at all. decent car and ferocious engine. :thumbsup:

Hell yeah, I'd roll in it :) VQs just don't have the certain "something" of an RB26

Thanks everyone!

As for as the weight distribution yes it is heavier but after cutting all the unneeded material from the front diff and from some other places the weight wasn't to far off and even less with a full tank of gas lol. The car is RWD and ill be posting some more pics of everything through out the build. The injectors are actually 660cc's shes running at 10psi on a break-in tune, pushing 350whp gonna be running in the 20ish PSI range.

why re fitting a RB , VQ is a far better motor , just needs a set of rods and pistons , then they will make big bhp fitted with a pair of turbo,s.

Good project thou , how did you make the dash work with the RB fitted and what gearbox are you using?

Everything inside including gauges and A/C work just like factory. We used an extender for the shifter and it comes up in the factory location. in other words if you sat in the car you wouldn't know it wasn't VQ powered unless u turned it on. :smokin:

sounds good, just trying to work out how you got around the can bus system the 350 has. Far play if you have , awesome ride. Now will a Titan motor fit in the front , thats got to be the next motor to be fitted with turbo,s of course....
