Ya...not a supporter of the night or mountain drifting thing lol the swap was a lot of work..challenging from what i could gather when he would explain things here and there...not too mention the amount of time he spent modifying it and everything. but im hella proud of him...it definitely is a beast. I want a coupe hella much! i cant wait...but no ls1 in that lol i want to be able to drive the damn thing. lexi

Screw purism, I'd take an LS1 over my stock 2.4 any day! Although, how much does it upset the car's balance?

Ima do my best to answer that! lol He said that he doesn't even notice the motor being there..when he had the RB in he felt it alot, but the Ls1 is a champ. i know that when he first put in the engine and started testing it out...the back end would slide hella easily out of 3rd. he didnt put in the sway bar until after he drifted a few times and knew he needed it. the video is after the sway bar was put in. i have links to his photobucket and a rockyou slide show...showing his build...if anyone is interested!! i have this one video of another engine he built for his 240z the 3.2L Stroker...i wish he would do something like that for this engine. He did a walk around and rev'd it hella high! i think rite now his rev limit is at 6k...but it sounds wicked when he's speeding all crazy lol he dragged it too..but now i forgot what time he was getting..in like 13.6 range or something for the quarter mile run. I am not sure tho. Im just his biggest fan...and the car thing is new to me, but i love it. it is so interesting to me! Alexis

The LS1 probably helps the car's balance, considering it's over 100 pounds lighter than the KA24. It's probably damn near 50/50 weight balance.

Well.. to start things out nicely.. he has a nice car, but I hate the LS1 mod in anything that it does not belong it.

Two - Tell him to go on a god damn track. He's going to end up killing someone else or himself.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion...doesnt take away from the fact that:
(1) he accomplished what he set out to do or (2) made one savage vehicle.

As for "telling him to go on a god damn track"....this was one night to get video smashin with his friends...safe? maybe not... but not something he does every day. He track races the car with his racing seats/seatbelts and helmet. The video wasn't meant for people to judge his driving ethics...but to see the car and what it can do. Sorry u disapprove...but i really wasnt looking for anyone's approval. just wanted to share because regardless of his night drifting and mountain sliding...im proud of him. Alexis

i dont think i understand the whole balance thing lol i will ask him about that later. what i do know about the weight: Ls1 weighs 460 with everything but tranny, KA engine and tranny weigh 505. His car weighs 2625 (with the ls1) and with half a tank of gas. i am not sure what it weighed before the swap but i can find out...

I was wondering about the weight comparison myself. I know the KA is an iron block, so it's pretty heavy for its size. Is the LS1 aluminum?

Next time you disagree how about you give some information as opposed to being a little ***** and just putting "Misinformation." I dont even care if I'm wrong, but smart *** remarks like that **** me off.

And I cant understand why somebody wouldnt like a LS1 in a 240. Thats like a guy saying he doesnt want a bigger ***** and the ability to last longer in bed. LSx's have been known to get 30MPG on the highway, while putting down more torque than you can shake a stick at. To get that much power out of a nissan engine fuel economy and turbo lag become worse.
