Give me 10 more years when my 4.0 bites the dust, and I'll give it a whirl. But I'm happy with the 4.0.

Fairly certain it can be done since Nissan is now selling Pathfinders with Titan V8s in them. I really don't see the point of it though, I find mine has more than enough power. If I did it, I would find some way of adding weight to the back end for sure. Can't imagine a daily driver with that kind of power to weight ratio, think of wet weather and snow as well. Every time you touch the gas it'd smoke your tires to the rim. All the power to you though, it would be a fun project and definitely a unique machine too.


PS Sandi...... I think your V6 is in a little different class than ours 181 164

I have read then someone has done it to an Xterra and also the Pathy has it stock. So it can be done. I would love to do it!! I think you can get the Endurance engines for around $2500 which is cheaper than supercharging right now.

An old 240Z, 260Z, and 280Z, an SAS Hardbody rock monster, more Jeeps than any one person needs (81 Renegade white w/blue Levi pkg, 86 black Lerado, any CJ8 Scrambler, an old M38A, anything rock-able), a 56 F100 (independent front clip, big hp, tubbed rear, chopped 4" top), always liked the 78 Bandit TA, 67 8 9 Camero, 69 Hemi Cuda convertible, 67-79 Vette (preferably 67-72), any GTO, mid 80s Monte Carlo SS, believe it or not an MG Midget, Cooper mini old or new, any of the old 40s coupes, late 60s early 70s Patrol, the Hardbody CC diesel I saw several times while in Japan, 350Z convertible in red, 2002 R34 GTR V-Spec II nur, and of coarse an 08 GTR (but I'll wait on the V-Spec).

Don't care anything about any of the exotics.

I think someone on the other forum has successfully done a vk56 swap. I don't know if he's got everything hooked up or not.

AndyXXXX is the username...the X are numbers. 1106? IDK. Might be under performance mods. Don't want to read through that thread...way too many pages.
