VH45 swap
« on: July 15, 2010, 06:37:18 PM »

move this if it needs to be moved.

We're gonna be pumping the VH swaps out out of my shop here in san antonio. I know what some are you gonna say...why put a 300hp v8 in your car when you can run an lsx or jx or whatever? Well, they are cheap and you can get them VERY easy at your local junkyard. Were doing these swaps turnkey for $4k. Everything is made inhouse. If anyone has been by the shop they can attest for out work and you'll be seeing a bunch of these out at minwells soon. This is the perfect middle of the road swap. A little more money than an sr but alot cheaper than doing an lsx swap.

Heres the breakdown of what is included and done...
Vh45de with under 100k(chain/guides/tensioners/gaskets/ect...replaced if need be)
z32 tt tranny
custom tranny adapter (similar to mazworx but a higher grade aluminum)
machine bellhousing
oe q45 rubber mounts on custom engine mounts
stage 1/2/3 clutch (your choice)
lightweight flywheel
transmission mount
custom shifter mount
custom driveshaft
longtube headers
engine harness
WORKING A/C
sr radiator
for $4k installed and running
Im sure im leaving some of the stuff out but thats the jist of it. If anyone is a diyer and has any questions or would like to buy individual pieces to do they're own swap I'm more than willing to give you guys a hand. We've got all the jigs set up to pump these swap parts out like crazy.

Awesome.  I'm going to recommend this to my brother for his build.  He may drop it off, but just in case, what's pricing for the complete swap kit?

i paid i touch over 4k for mine, but i bought a few other things. thats like doing any swap though. you'll prolly need to get a new fuel pump and some extra goodies as well. for what it is paying 4k is a good deal.

chewye30 - $650 but you will need to send us your bellhousing and we will ship it back with the mounts/adapter. Add $150 for the transmission mount.

texas240 - let me talk to my fabricator but somewhere in the ballpark of 2k.

Be patient with us everyone. I'm really suprised so many people are interested in this already. I've already gotten quite a few calls/emails so we'll have all the prices for everything locked down soon and get some stuff instock ready to ship. I'll also get some pictures of all this stuff soon so you can actually see what your buying.

you can see my car under the knife on my thread here, or kevins green machine, or http://www.sarapbuhay.com/
