Default V8 LSX or LS2 swap

You guys ever think of doing a V8 swap into your 350Zs or G35s? Hinson Supercars now has a V8 swap available for our cars. We all know the VQ has limitations with FI, why not upgrade to a larger more stout motor? Thinking about this one. What do you guys think?

it's been done before, numerous times I am sure. I've seen an LS2 350z and I've seen a 350z with the titan engine. it's expensive.

I think if you roasted your engine or something it would be an interesting idea, but for the money its probably just worth it to upgrade what you have.

If you want a faster car, just buy a Corvette why bother doing an upgrade like that to a 350z? Its like modifying a 600cc street bike... Why? Just buy a 750cc...

Good idea. Too much money modding cars can make for a broke man.
