VR30 Swapped 370z

If any company could do a smoggable vr30 swap with a 6 speed, I’d probably pay more for that than any tt kit on the market

It's awesome that you pulled this off, and for a budget that is within just about any enthusiast's reach. Hell, being originally from South Florida, I'm proud you guys are out of Miami.

That said, I find your videos unwatchable as an observer that's interested in the details of the build. If you want a higher view count, focusing a lot more on tech and less on your friends shooting the **** would make a big difference. I'd suggest editing down what you have to make a compressed overview.

No doubt! I respect that feedback, but I have to stay true to myself. My videos are vlogs of my friends and I shooting the sh*ts 😅. Having a lot of views would be great, but Iím cool with building a crowd that vibes with that. After this feedback Iíll make sure to record more of the process so itís a more technical overview. I just didnít think anyone would care to see a VQ pulled when we all want to see the VR put in.

Bro, I REALLY hope this stays in budget. Itíd be a fun and different alternative. I feel like weíre all doing the same thing and it was time to put some more life into the Z34.

Thank you for the feedback, brother!

How do you plan on integrating all of the engine management? I would love to take something like this on one day if I knew how to wire it up.

so total noob question (stupid question time yay!!) but if this all just bolts up - would it then be easier to upgrade to bigger turbo down the line since everything within that engine pretty much setup for a TT setup?

Also - i've checking out your channel on YT as well - this could/will be an interesting build - can't wait to see how it goes etc.

Very cool. Many people have been interested in this for a long time. Maybe an affordable option for this swap will be made after all.

@MiamiZParts will be making a harness for me. Apparently it connects (Q50/60 harness) with the z34 BCM very well. Either that or blow budget and get a stand alone.

Maybe because you lose out on AC and PS (We found solutions but we have test it out) or maybe they think itís a more complicated process. Who knows.
Itís smarter to upgrade the turbos with the motor out but I want to capture all the stages Iím going through. I hope to have it all laid out for everyone.

It would be a shame to lose climate control anywhere in FL . I hope Miami Z Parts can get some info put up about services like the harness mod.
Good luck!
