iight kool, i always wanted one but for that price i can go boost lol.
thats true. and we never got a real answer to who will win vq or boosted spec. but its all about a building platform, and theres no replacement for displacement.

whats killing me is, all these vq swaps look stock, like dealer made

VQ, pistons, rods, cometic gasket, boost. I'd do it that way.

how reliable are the swaps anyway in terms of taking a beating? and how are the turbo vqs holding up i assumed that there would be some weight added because of the engine size and boost equipment?

the vq only weighs like 40lbs more than a qr. but in this car the old altima motor is cast iron so it probably weigh the same, or few ponds more. boosted 3.5's hold up pretty decent with single digit boost. the weight issuse hasnt been that much of a big deal in the two specs that are running this set up as of yet

What ECU running it?
maxima ecu i think.
