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.
Cody Green: In today's market there really isn't anyone using DOHC heads to their advantage. DOHC is a more stable design. But when you have OHV engines running 6500-7000 rpm and DOHC running the same they aren't even utilizing their design strength. They should easily be running 9000 rpm. Or more. The only time you even see DOHC being used to its potential is in motorcycles and F1. At School of Automotive Machinists their car has a 440ci lsx that turns 10,000 rpm. Thats OHV. That makes DOHC look foolish.
Cody Green: Ok lets take the same 2 engines. now put heads on them that are different. The 4 Cyl will be DOHC and the V8 will be OHV. Which one is better for racing? Whoever said the one that moves the most air is right. There is nothing wrong with a OHV engine. If the heads move just as much air as the DOHC heads than i would say the DOHC heads aren't using their advantage of more valves per cyl. Now lets talk about stable RPM on each set of heads....(Continued)
Cody Green: I feel like this needs to be said with all this import vs American stuff... Guys engines are just air pumps. And whoever can move the most air in the same amount of time/distance is gonna win. Let me break this down. Lets take a 2.0L 4 cly vs a 4.0L V8. now hypothetically they have 100% Volumetric efficiency. That said, the 2.0 has to automatically move 2x the air just to be an equal with the v8. It can do that by running more RPM or by forced induction. Now lets talk about heads...(continued)
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
samjaramillo: How's the the weight distribution and gas millage? Doing this to my z
Seymour Butz: typical hater. real car enthusiast enjoy all sorts of cars not just the high tech 10 valve, 1 litre, V20s that astronauts create from diamonds
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 about :)
VodeAn: ...and my erection is permanent.
VodeAn: I have an LS motor with a single turbo in my 300zx, gets the job done. I put a video up if you want to see what that sounds like.
Skipper1mc: Dude, you are freaking retarded. I thibk YOU need to do some research.
jordan hickman: weak as hell
Turbodatshit09: Good job! People that don't drive ls powered cars are always gonna hate.. Way better than vh vk vg and Rb .. Have fun and keep her sideways!
Yardjass: Yes, and look at it. It's fantastic. Besides, the best cars have always and probably always be the ones that don't restrict themselves to parts within one border or one company. Just look at the McLaren F1, 427 Cobra, pretty much any of the high end hypercars outside of Italy or Germany. I've been getting a lot of pushback from fanboys and purists but they can criticize all they want because in the end, they're still slower.
snoffuful: ls1 should have been for 300zx in the first place
ChaseKittens: This is my dream car.
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)
Mike Loq: Nice work. 2+2 straight 6 will still walk you out
wickedfastgt2003: Slow as crap for an LS1. Whoever built this turd did a horrible job.
spdrcrtc: what type of exhaust are you running?
James Jenkins: Do you still have ac?
homeboyskilletfresh: Your my hero, lol!!!
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...
BigZman95: I think when I do my V8 swap, I should make it a sleeper. All stock body except rims, and some Flowmasters so it runs quiet until I rev it up. And then some *** in a Mustang or Camaro will be like "nice ricer" and then I rev it up and they get all scared cuz I have the same amount of cylinders haha.
ladygodia: " It has a lot more potential with turbo upgrades, " Nothing has more potential than an LS1. sorry. He would of wasted money to get the same HP this motor can output with mild work done to it.
ladygodia: If you can't beat em' join em.
Brandon Stuck: mayeb try
andys auto sport . com
take out the spaces they might have them
rickzmustang: 7 liters is a 427
rickzmustang: I want to take one of these and put a sbf 302 into it.
powershift50: Now THAT is an import! hehehe
SuperFast3OOOGT: You should have kept the stock V6. It has a lot more potential with turbo upgrades, but still... nice work.
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.
Freeze aka Brian Jeffreys: Does anyone know who makes and/or where I can get the motor mounts for this conversion? This is awesome and I have always loved the american V8. Thanx for your time and help.
WillyPhister: Not as cool as the twin turbo inline 6
undeadkillers: Uh, no? It had a V6.
blabla3o: well as a ford 460 is = to 7.5, a gm 454 is equal to 7.4
my kung fu is strong
oh KevinTheVillian: 7 Liters ha ha haha that would be more like a 454 Big block.
AutoJunkieMan: this car is ment to have a Straight 6.. :(
Syperion: arent you cool. do your research, it can and has been done multiple times. dipcrap
undeadkillers: Then move your crap off of youtube and go talk somewhere else.
faded2blak: besides that wasnt even the arguement...the arguement was who could build the better motor with more power...so please go away
faded2blak: what would you kno?? honestly why are yu even in this convo??? 2000hp is streetable...therefore a street engine...you seriously just sound like a retarded wanna-be-know-it-all douchebag tryna put his two-cents in even though he doesnt have half-a-penny to spare because he gets all of his knowledge from watchin youtube. seriously i dont need you to tell me the difference between a race motor or a street motor. i do this crap everyday for a living. i dont need a "backseat driver"
