VQ37HR engine - what to do with it? :)

Recommended Posts

As some of you know I still have the VQ37HR engine that I was planning to build and stick in the 370z. The 370z now belongs to Scott, so I don't need the engine anymore.

 

What do you guys think I should do with it?

 

1. Fix it as OEM and bring it over (nothing major wrong with it)

2. Build it as Stage 1 (750bhp+) or Stage 2 (850bhp+) and bring it over here

3. Sell it over there in USA as it is

4. Any other idea?

 

Thanks!

Bring it over here and drop it into a Z32 and use as a demo car......

Actually, scratch that.

You can't get the DE low enough to clear the bonnet so chances of managing it with a vq37 are close to zero.

Great minds, my friend :)

 

Would actually be a great little conversion, I reckon.

At least it would be staying in the "Z" family . . not going in a Hairdressers Roller-skate :lol:

Give it to Darren to pop in the 240 B)

I actually like that idea, ...love classic cars mixed with modern engines/running gear. Best of both worlds combined imo. B);)

I looked into this a little while ago, to get a vq in an mx5 you would need to make some extensive modifications to the height of the engine by either dry-sumping or re-designing the plenum.

Seems high tech. What about sawing a big hole in the bonnet?
