Nissan R33 Skyline with a turbo Barra inline-six

This Nissan R33 Skyline features more displacement and power thanks to owner and builder Barra33. Under the hood sits a turbocharged Ford 4.0 L Barra inline-six featuring CP pistons, Manley connecting rods, upgraded valve springs, and head/main studs. The engine should make a lot of power thanks to a BorgWarner SX369 turbocharger with two Turbosmart 45 mm wastegates. The factory drivetrain was replaced with a ZF 6HP six-speed automatic transmission from a 2009 Ford Falcon (FG) Turbo, custom one-piece driveshaft, and R230 differential from a Nissan Z32 TT.

    I’m in the states, looking for input swapping Barra 4.0 Into an Infiniti G35. I believe that would be your Nissan skyline. There is zero support here while I see tons of swaps in NZ. And Netherlands. Please can anybody point me in the direction of a shop that know this swap. Everybody here is doing a jz swap or general motors v8 swap. I want to do the Barra swap. Any input would be appreciated . I’m not sure I will find this page again. Please respond to my email below.
