i know i am swimming against the tide but by the gods i hate everything about this. splitters and wings do not belong on trucks, add in a LS swap on a nissan. no just no hell no.

Looks like a new entry for the NASCAR Truck Series. Those should have a Titan V8, 370Z manual transmission, and RWD!

LS swaps are always a good answer.
I mean, they can be. I get it, he is chasing 1000hp, which is just not going to happen with the VK. I think a 500-600HP VK would have really added to the wow factor of this over "Another LS swap". But, that is the guy's company, so. I get it.

I think the armada rear is a great touch.

Keep in mind this was built for Autocross type events, so, While I agree, I do not....
i hear you and i understand the reasoning but it is just a better built version of those horrid looking ricer add a wing and cheesy body kit cars. its like one of those ricer kids grew up and went full stupid on a build.

i really hate the LS swap everything mindset, its cheap, easy, low effort crap and is just so played out. at this point i don't think there is a single car/truck that somebody hasn't LS swapped.

Gimme. Either my own version, or at least ONE joyride, pretty please. (y)
Acceleration is #1...followed by handling as a d-i-s-t-a-n-t #2.

They must've done some serious relocating/configuring of 'underhood things' since they clearly stuffed in the twin turbos where they SHOULD be where the exhaust gases are hottest and most expansive.

I guess this says something for the LS motors, not just power wise but reliability!
I'm still more of a Ford guy, so a 351 Cleveland bored/stroked would fulfill me more. Just sayin.

There's truth on that. Love or hate 'em ( I've been a GM man myself since the early 70s when I was a wee tyke ), you have to admit the LSx series can make stupid power and not blow up, for hours and hours.
I also agree a built VK would have been pretty cool, but have no idea w/o casting a custom block, and forging rods and a crank, if it'd approach that number w/ any durability. I have to chuckle when some folk throw big rocks at the "Neandertal" pushrod V8, and ask can't GM come up w/ anything better, well, they sorta did, the Cadillac Blackwing engine is state-of-the-art, and you can still wail on an LSx harder and it'll live. Something to be said for simple,
I recall a modern philosopher waxing rhapsodic about some super-new weapons kit-out and then observed that while individual A is trying to get his custom-built AR platform gun to function reliably, individual B sneaks up behind him and whacks him in the head with a $20 framing hammer. Dead. Sometimes the simple answers work too.

I'm an old school mini-trucker (1973 Customized Datsun 620) and I approve of this conversion (like that really matters). Definitely an old school conversion taken with modern components. Back in the day it was a Chevy 350 small block with a 350 turbohydromatic automatic transmission and a narrowed rear end hijacked from a Mustang, Camaro, or Chevy Nova. One guy I knew put a chromed out Jaguar rear end in his 1978 Datsun 620. I love this conversion.

Man, I'd pay to see an inboard-disc-braked chromed-out Jag rear in a Datsun. That is so dang cool. Did he do a Chevrolet engine too?
