LS1 V8 , engine, 350z swap, build

Recommended Posts

Hi Andy  me to ,but mostly it will make the installation a bit easier as i can reuse the power steering and air conditioning line's from the car which is a big bonus

Quite a lot of the mechanical side of the build has been done. The prop shaft is going to be installed just a photo to show the difference in length of the the original 350z carbon fibre to the new shorter prop shaft.

I have purchased water pipes and vacuum lines ,and intend to get them install in around  two weeks time but first I will  be tackling the wiring, with some help as I hate wiring :scare:

So the wiring, is a stand-alone, so the ecu and engine  wiring is completely separate to the ECU in 350z, so yes specialist wiring loom made by canemsIMG-20200417-WA0008.jpg.e5d6376f1c2d9dad21f8d3ea759d72d1.jpg

I will try to explain when once we have some  progress on the wiring but I'm no expert.  Ps. (I'm expect the dashboard to light up like a Christmas tree):wacko:who said wiring wasn't fun.

 

The exhaust manifold and starter motor and steering rack which is positioned on the driver side has been a challenge as there is not much room for clearance on all three items to work properly without interfering with each other it would have been better if the starter motor had been positioned on the passenger side but the kit does not allow for this.

I have managed to find and enough room for this to work without  interferences with each other. I will try me best to put some photos to show when I have finished install.

Been tidying up the pipe runs and in some places secured them , so as they can not to rub on anything that might damage them . Also I was mucking with the air filter :teeth:.

Installed the oil filter relocation kit from sikky  .  Also  Connected the fuel pipe to Ls fuel rail,   Surprisingly, a standard Nissan click on fuel connection works

Onto the next stage now with the wiring , this is stage where there's not a lot to show you but here's a couple of photos to give you a rough idea and it will take a while to complete so I probably won't post for couple of weeks :wacko:

awesome build , Wiring specialities loom are pretty much plug and play , I presume your using the LS ECU so are you using the CAN BUS translator so the stock car is happy?

Yes pretty much as you say, the Nissan ecu will run everything around the engine ,and a separate ecu will run and translate the LS engine :thumbs:
