i finally finished my project. my 1994 base 3000gt with a j-spec VR-4 swap. its running great but i still have to get a downpipe mad eto house the o2 sensor so it will boost normal. it really wasnt that hard considering i had a whole other half of a car to see how things went together and so fourh. It was my first motor swap but i am very satisified in the way things turned out. after everything is running right ill make up a complete list of everything i have added and hopefully ill have some 1/4 mile times to post.

I have to say i couldn't have done anything without the help of the shop of where my car was under construction "AlternativeAutoworks" and my mechanic Shannon Gordon which made things so much easier with his answers to everything i had a question aboput along the way.

Also i have to thank Hans and Gatecraser which answered many questions i had about the swap.

i guess all i have to say is :):)

hey na3000gt24, congradulations on the swap, i think it's awesome to see more swaps cause i think it's a worthwhile thing to do. Couple questions for you. About how much was the total cost and how's the wheelspin with all that extra power?
