VK45DE swap

ok so i've been looking around at the vh45de swap. very impressive numbers for very cheap. my question is has anybody successfully swapped a vk45de in an S-chassis with a manual trans? i've seen people discuss but the most i've ever found was all vh45de swap (which i'm def interested in doing). reason i'm asking is bc with the vk starting with higher hp can be a good platform to start with esp with it being newer. and plz no money issue arguments about "how much it costs" or "its not worth the swap" bs either. jus focus on the question. thanx yall!

well wut i saw on google was a big thread about a nissan frontier 6 speed trans. with some minor mods. but it seems as though that not too much definite detail about whether it works or not....swapping out the bellhousing from that to a 350z 6spd also.

I haven't personally seen the VK in a 240sx but i think it would be a good platform to start with. I know that the VK uses solid bucket lifters like the VQ, so theyre not maintenance free like the VH's are. The VH's HLA's are solid, so theyre not a weak link like they may be in a SR. (info custesy of elwesso, from nicoclub)

I just picked up this motor for my S14 its a VH45DE. The plan is to do a VH45DETT build.


As you can see im a proud new father. LOL

The transmission will not work. VQ and VH/VK's have a much different bolt pattern.

I'll have adapter plates for the VQ and VH transmissions soon. And ST, that's a good looking motor. I'd prefer to have longer runners but that should be fun.

Will trade crazy 6point cage for RB20DET swap!
