Put in my order for Steven's diamond axle housing to start up my SAS but ended up blowing a head gasket so my SAS will be on hold for a bit. It's starting to get hot here in AZ so not going wheeling for a while. Thought I would use this chance to pull the motor out and get something done!

Picked up a disassembled VG33 that came with the Q45 pistons and VG30DETT rods. Apparently the seller was going to attempt the same swap but moved out of state and needed his old junk gone! I lucked out there. He was even down the street from me, go figure.

My plan is to use the VG30 crank since both cranks are already out id have to replace rod/main bearings no matter which one I used. And less machining of course Smiley

Don't care about oil filter location or the 60k/100k timing belt service.


What i'm using from my VG30
-All accessories
-Water pump
-Timing covers
-Valve covers
-Cams Decided on Euro cams
-Oil pan?
-Random miscellaneous stuff.

What i'm using from the VG33
-Crank (Using Mr.510's pulley adapter to fit my vg30 pulley)
-Oil Pump
-Timing gears
-Block
-Heads
-Anything else I find I need

Everything will be sent to the machine shop to get cleaned up and to bore out the cylinders to 93mm to accept the Q45 pistons.

Since I don't see myself ever swapping a v8 into the pathy I thought I would spend some time/money into the VG and make it worth my while since I will basically have a new motor.  Cool

Performance mods
-Doug Thorley Headers
-Euro Cams
-2.5" Exhaust
-JWT ECU

If you notice a problem I might run into or an easier way to do something, please let me know Smiley

Here's what pictures I have at the moment.

This is pretty freaking cool! Keep it updated; I'm sure there will be plenty of people keeping an eye on how this is getting done.
