Nissan 370Z NISMO with a Twin-Turbo VR30DDTT V6

2012 Nissan 370Z Nismo with a twin-turbo VR30DDTT V6

This Nissan 370Z called Project Clubsport 23 was built by Nissan Motorsports and MA-Motorsports. The project’s goal was to build a dedicated track-only race car for developing and testing performance parts. The project started by swapping the factory 3.7 L VQ37VHR V6 in a 2012 Nissan 370Z NISMO for a twin-turbo 3.0 L VR30DDTT V6. The new engine is found Infiniti Q50/Q60 Red Sport and makes 400 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 350 lb-ft of torque at 1,600-5,200 rpm. MA-Motorsports developed a clutch and flywheel so the engine could mate to the 370Z six-speed manual transmission and send power to the NISMO GT LSD Pro-Carbon 2-way differential. They upgraded the suspension with NISMO 3-piece body brace set, KW Variant 3 coilover kit, Eibach rear springs and the brakes with Z1Motorsports 2-piece slotted rotors and NISMO HC Street/Track brake pads.

    Can anyone here help me with what I need to do to swap one of these into my z32 2+2? Otherwise I’m gonna end up RB25 or VH45 swapping it. Thanks!
