Default Another Z joining the dark side (LS6 swap)

Well the time has come to join the dark side. I loved my VQ being supercharger but just was not doing it for me. Like all of us I wanted more power and after weighing my options it was better for me to build an LS than build the VQ. So here is my progress so far...

Street driven car? I'm curious how you're going to make it CA legal and how you're going to handle the guages etc....

Looks like a sweet project

Making it CA legal I'm pretty screwed..the gauges AEM infinity has a 350Z version that keeps your factory gauges working looking into that. If that does not work I might get the CD-7 dash.
