LT1 in a 240sx?
Hey guys, so heres where im at with my LT1... I got an LS motor going in my T/A in less than a month. The setup is more than i need for the street or track but the problem is (and i have the same problem now) when i get out on the track i baby the car too much in fear of wrecking it. Dont get me wrong, ill still track the car but my thoughts are i have a motor setting here now and nothing to put it in...
I know a guy that dose N.A.S.A. racing and entry level drifting and hes telling me i should go buy a cheap 240sx body and throw the motor in that, He says he knows the swaps been done but not what alls involved. I figure if i can find one and do it i can beat it up ruthlessly on the track and not worry about it.
My LT1 deffinatly needs a rebuild so id probably beef up the bottom end and do heads and cam on it while i was at it. Im figuring a 400-450hp would be plenty of motivation for such a light little car. Id just gut it out and fab a rollcage since it would be strictly a racecar.
Luckly my pop's is a master fabricator so that parts no prob but its the actual swap i need details on. If anyone on here can point me in the right direction or has a better car suggestion for the swap/criteria let me know.
Thanks in advance guys1997 Pontiac Trans Am- 1 of 34 build Medium Quasar Blue

I've seen them put in an Rx7 and 240's before. I'm pretty sure they make a kit for both cars, you'll just have to look around.

I know of someone who had one of those LT1 240's. He kept the fart cannon on it so when it was off people thought it was a 4 banger. But when it started up people would flock to it. Dam thing was faster than hell too. couldnt keep the back tires on it.1996 Pontiac Firebird M6- Pro 5.0 ,Welfare CAI, Magnaflow Catback, Longtubes, 160 thermostat, BMR torque arm, lower control arms and LCA relocation brackets, TB bypass, e-cutout, on my second motor, third clutch, third fuel pump and loving every minute of it!

Buddy of mine just got a 78 280z and I will admit that it looks pretty cool. I'd like to maybe find one to swap a LT1 and 4L60E in!
