In the wild world of engine swaps, we can tend to see some crazy combinations come together. A few couple of common setups that find their way around the community. One that most certainly isn’t common is the one about the R35 GT-R swap. The VR38DETT found in these cars is still rather expensive as are the cars themselves. It might’ve come out in 2007 but we still don’t see too many swapped into other applications.
This time, we run a risk to consider such a swap but it isn’t anything that aligns with what we would expect. Perhaps swapping the engine into something like an older Skyline or custom hot rod would maximize sense, traditionally.
Instead, though, this creator wanted to do something that would help them to stand right out of the pack a bit bit. Instead of going down the beaten path, their platform for the swap would be anything but traditional.
