yeazell Sam: its alot easier to make hp if u start with more of it.and the amount of
mods available for the ls1 is ridicoulus.the only reason i wouldnt swap is
if it already had the vg30tt.
bottom line is ricers are mad because they think everything is about boost
.the v8 is the best engine ever created.
undeadkillers: @faded2blak Then move your crap off of youtube and go talk somewhere else.
kda1nc: @cubaguy87 or you could just go with the vg30dett that the car comes with
just upgrade turbos but the ls1 does have a more evil sound not that the
vg30dett doesnt :-)
Cody Green: So technically by what i have been ranting all these DOHC engines should be
wasting these so called "junky" OHV V8s. So really who cares who made what
engine. Any educated racer is going to pick the one with good structural
rigidity, a good oiling system, and heads that move air. If you say v8s
suck you just sound ignorant to an educated person. And if you say Imports
suck you are just as ignorant. Some import engines are built/designed 2x as
good as American stuff.
luciax402: Keep the turbo
ChaoticXCarnage: Its a 300zx what more is there to say. I'm considering doing the LS1 swap
in my 96 300zx but have too many projects so it'll have to wait but
concerning power/weight ratio it'll definently be a badass car when its
done. Until then i'm stayin VG30. even n/a its a badass motor. a few mods.
PVTstupid: @daWKin548 Oh please they're only a mildly tuned engine designed to run day
in and day out reliably to 100000 miles and beyond. Show me another man.
with a 500 hp N/A v8 with decent gas mileage, great reliability,
lightweight, mildly tuned, and as inexpensive as the ls7. You can't. You
got ferrari's newer v8 aggressively tuned close to its maximum potential in
a street application, comparatively bad fuel economy, don't even know if
it'll start on a cold day, expensive, high maintenance, ect,
renzokukenleonhart: i plan on having this as my first car.
joe645733: @ChirtyPoundsOfBoost and just to show you, one of the Z1 shop cars is a 9.2
second car with stock heads and cams.
tangled Line: I would have thought there would be more power in that setup. Hearing those
tires squeal and not smoke kinda gave it away.
DVcustomZ: @EatPez I do not see where my statement is no false I provided the dyno NOT
crank WHP for my swap with exhaust. I am talking WHP numbers not car math
and crank numbers every swap I have seen makes less than 400WHP and for the
cost associated with it I do not see it. PPl keep throwing weight
differences like they are prof AUTOX racers or time attack DD that 80lb
difference is a non factor. Like I sd unless U add F/I to the LS I dont get
it. I am in the planning of a domestic swap myself no HATE
joe645733: @ChirtyPoundsOfBoost i did. i figured you'd remember what we were talking
about 5 minutes ago.
joe645733: @ChirtyPoundsOfBoost ok you're saying a 454 motor costs less than a stock
300zx. i'm sure everyone knows that. but we're not talking about different
motors here. for an ls1 to make 500bhp with bolt ons costs at least 3k or
over. it's cheaper for the 300zx to achieve 500hp. and don't forget a tune
for the ls1 too.
ChirtyPoundsOfBoost: @joe645733 See I really find that hard to beilive because if you really
want to go in terms of cost, you can get a 454 from the junkyard for dirt
cheap, drop some money into it and you have yourself 500 RELIABLE crank
horsepower for less then the cost of a stock 300zx.
joe645733: @ChirtyPoundsOfBoost what i said is true, n/a motors with turbo kits don't
need high amounts of pressure from the turbos to make good power. which is
when i stated boosted n/a motors just work differently than FI motors. and
no, a supra doesn't need 40lbs of boost lol. 26psi can easily get you over
700rwhp. and that number is pretty crazy to me for a street legal car. i'm
just stating a fact that an LS1 motor can't handle high psi. does it need
to? no, but im just sayin
dre5491: Pull the LS1 and drop in a 2jzgte...
blabla3o: @KevinTheVillian well as a ford 460 is = to 7.5, a gm 454 is equal to 7.4
454= 7.4 my kung fu is strong oh
Syperion: @hobotechMASTER arent you cool. do your research, it can and has been done
multiple times. dipcrap
mageac: why doesn everyone always seem to think more hp means worse cornering...
real life is not a video game, the power of an engine is quite literally,
irrelevant to cornering...
jar3388: I will need a motor soon and would love give my na some balls. Ls1 seems to
be my first choice. 6 speed and still can slap twins in it... My erection
will be perman
FATBOYREPPIN502: wow that is truely badass man!!
cubaguy87: No offense. Like the car and what not BUT I would of went with a 2jz swap
or even a 1jz swap out of a lexus. V8. Lighter. Make same power if not more
depending on condition of motor.
ChirtyPoundsOfBoost: @joe645733 Can you not freaking read? I said you would have to put low
compression pistons in an LS1 for high boost. There's a huge topic about
detonation on the vg30 motor on z32 tuning forums, check it out for
yourself. I dont mind argueing with you because Id like to learn some
things for myself but god damn you need to be more clear.
Djay Bookie: 28 people drive a prius
ChirtyPoundsOfBoost: @joe645733 No, im not understanding your english very well, not to be rude
but could please explain what that comment even meant? "you wont see an n/a
car with a turbo kit added with those numbers" - You. Huh? Charlie
Givilancz owns a T/A with an LS1 TT setup and at 16psi he makes 854RWHP.
EatPez: @1234drewski Send me your engine harness and I'll straghten it out for you.
I've done close to 100 harnesses for people doing various engine swaps into
Rich Conklin: freak gay as hell
hobotechMASTER: @daWKin548 5 months ago eh? and guess what? youre STILL a freakin retard
joe645733: @ChirtyPoundsOfBoost LS1 motors can't run high boost due to the high
compression. if you went with more boost than you normally see, you'd NEED
to use the correct kind of gas or else it'd detonate. it's not just because
they don't need a higher number of boost. trust me, if it was possible to
do so on the LS1, everyone would do it for the high number of power. the
LS1 cannot handle high boost, that's all
EatPez: @joe645733 1st of all, no one ever said that modding a car was a matter of
finacial literacy. Now you don't make any sence. You talk about 600hp VG,
600hp LS, 700hp, 400hp LS. make up your mind. Getting 600hp out of an LS
isn't hard or expensive. Of course, the cheeper iron block, low compression
LS motors regularly make over 1500hp when TTed, & the high-dollar ones make
up to 2500hp. Slapping a turboo on a 100% stock LS1 & making 600hp is
pretty common. search here an you'll find 100s
snoffuful: ls1 should have been for 300zx in the first place
stangredemption: REALLY????????????? You're gonna go from a v6 to a v8 and you're worried
about gas mileage? The gas mileage is all depending on your foot, Fuel
supply type(Carb or EFI), auto/manual and to asnwer your qweight
distrobution question... You hit the gas, car sqauts. I mean what in the
hell dumb question is how's the gas mileage? :-/ damn import owners man
ChirtyPoundsOfBoost: @joe645733 You cant just crank up the boost on the turbos and expect some
results. More boost needs more fuel and more pressure creates more heat
which needs more cooling. Im sure the iron block and solid internals of the
VQ can handle it but it would bigger injectors and upgraded intercooler, a
tune etc... In the end the LS1 can make a lot more power then the VQ for a
similar cost. You will never beat a v8 when it comes to power effciency.
Mackenzie Rios: horrendous
joe645733: @ChirtyPoundsOfBoost " The vg30tt has detonation at 15psi on 91 octance
which requires a meth injection kit". there you go stupid ass. i never said
that you said, it'd detonate at 20psi? if anything, that's correct. you
said 15psi and i'm saying that's wrong.
joe645733: @ChirtyPoundsOfBoost what i meant was, you won't see an n/a motor that has
been TT'd have high pressure from the turbos. an n/a motor that has been
TT'd works differently than a turbo motor. for example, i've never seen a
turbo'd LS1 with 40lbs of boost like supra or evo would have. i'm just
saying the number of psi from the turbos doesn't really mean much depending
on what motor it is.
2007Escalade: Now THIS is how it should be done!
James Jenkins: Do you still have ac?
Marcel Schmidt: Nice car man!!! I was just wondering what was involved in the electrical
aspect of the conversion? I have a ls6 engine and am in the process of
picking up a 300zx.
ChirtyPoundsOfBoost: @joe645733 Call me ignorant but I still think LS1's are more power
effcient. Cams/heads/bolton LS1 is 450-500 horse and that costs just shy of
3 grand. There alot less of a hassle to take care of then a vg30 motor as
well. And if money isnt a variable anymore a TT ls1 would stomp a tt vg30.
emill910: @EatPez lol not quite but sure we can see what your tryin to say.
Philippe Lepage: Sure, I only owned 3 z32 and replaced the Turbos, intercooler, fuel pump,
injectors and clutch on all 3 so I guess I don't know what I'm talking
CBCOlympics: @dre5491 no keep the ls
jordan hickman: weak as hell
daWKin548: one word, PUSHRODS, and a phrase, 2-VALVES PER CYLINDER, any muppet can
make a 500bhp engine from 7 litres or 427's as yanks call them, how rubbish
ChirtyPoundsOfBoost: @joe645733 Yeah you have to get low compression pistons if you wanna go FI
on an LS1 because its N/A from the factory. Any motor can handle high boost
if built properly so your wrong there. The vg30tt has detonation at 15psi
on 91 octance which requires a meth injection kit, LS1 doesnt. I
exhaggerated the 40 psi about the supra. Exactly, your just "sayin" its
completely irrelevent to the arguement.
faded2blak: @undeadkillers besides that wasnt even the arguement...the arguement was
who could build the better motor with more power...so please go away
Yardjass: @joe645733 @ChirtyPoundsOfBoost What do you guys make of an LS3 swap into
an NA 300ZX. I'm finding brand new ones for like $6,500. High end it is 2
grand more and low end, it is exactly the same as what I expect it to cost
to swap a stock VG30DETT in. I figured it'd be about 11 grand to swap and
build the VG. It seems for that I could get a brand new engine and tranny
and get all the mounts and other things needed to put them in. (And end up
lighter than a Corvette with the same engine)
wickedfastgt2003: Slow as crap for an LS1. Whoever built this turd did a horrible job.
