Being a college student who is low on cash I looking for the best/most affordable engine swap to do on a 77 280z, I have been looking into a V8 swap but am not positive on what the final cost would be after putting in the new tranny and drivetrain to handle the extra power. I also have thought about the idea of swapping a engine from the Z's of the early 90's, Is that possible, any feedback will be apperciated?

Go turbo! Best bang for the buck, and you'll keep your handling characteristics. You can find everything you need in the junkyard.

V8 is a good way to go....

stop over at Hybrid Z http://www.hybridz.org/ and ask that question. We have lots of folks that have made the switch.

Pssssssst - here's a secret. A V8 Z with a SBC done right will handle better than the it did with the L6 in it!!!
