just drop in the 2009-10 HR maxima motor if your going to go this far , and you will need the harness as well

to do the 37 you will need a full stand alone to control two throttle bodies , unless you convert it to cable , but you will still need a stand alone that can control both DBW unless you get the harness to run everything and piggy back a standalone to the ECU , oil pan will have to be custom and a tranny plate may also need to be made to mate up the 6spd FWD gear box. VQ37 harness , Motor mounts need to be made

now unless your going www.v8altimas.com and going RWD VQ37 then thats a different story

BTW which shop in Tampa ? Z fever ?

my and my old boss were tinkering the idea , thus why I waited til the V8altima was updated.

I have a VK56DE sitting in my garage and my neighbor has a VK45 in his and looking at Coparts for a 350z , he also owns a TTZ

Been going back and fourth with the RWD with my car , considering I already have the VQ35 built for boost already.

It wold be a great to do RWD when half of the guess work has been almost cover by v8altima , I know me and my shop could fab the work but its the time I have to put in it which is limited.

Altho I am going to finish my boost build soon , RWD may come into play if I stumble across a murano rear sub frame for cheap

My opinion, if you want to do something like that. You must do a rear wheel drive swap also. That much power to the front wheels will mean nothing when the back end drops and you lose all the traction because the front lift and tires have no grip. I have been contemplating the g35 or g37 engine for a while now but I want a rwd to go with it or nothing.

Posted that link already on my 1st post..

Found it funny that the brackets for the R35 was made by Slammed INC (Danny) who I know , at least its good to know I can go around the corner and get these made if any A34 owners are going BBK.
