Default Sikky 350z/G35 LSX swap

We are happy to announce the 350z/G35 LSX kit is finally complete! This kit will allow you to bolt any LS series engine into your 350z and G35. No cutting or welding required. We decided it would be a good idea to show everyone just how easy this install is with our kit so we took a fairly stock G35 and began the install. Here are some pics and info to better show and explain this setup for those interested.

a new driveshaft comes in the sikky swap, but it does not offer any electronics plus alot more. So i still believe the Hinson Motorsports conversion kit is the only complete kit around.

At this point it comes to price and availability. If this hardware kit is cheaper than Hinsons then just get the electronics from Hinson!
