Streamline Your LS Swap with G Force Z32 and Z33 Transmission Adapter Kits
Harnessing the power of the LS Engine
Are you a Nissan 300ZX or 350Z enthusiast with dreams of harnessing the power of a Chevy LS engine? If so, you're in the right place! In this article, we'll dive into the world of LS engine swaps and explore how two fantastic adapter kits from G Force Performance Products, the Z32 LS Conversion Adapter Kit and the Z33 LS Conversion Adapter Kit, can make your swap smoother than ever before.
The Z32 LS Conversion Adapter Kit
Let's start with the Z32 LS Conversion Adapter Kit; it is a must-have for Nissan 300ZX owners aiming to bring LS power to their ride. The GM V8 LS engine is renowned for its performance and versatility, making it a popular choice for engine swaps. When paired with the robust Z32 transmission, this combination can handle up to 700 horsepower, making it a dream come true for many gearheads.
The key to this seamless integration is the Z32 5-speed adapter plate. This adapter kit simplifies the connection between the Z32 transmission and an LS engine, fitting 300ZX transmissions with naturally-aspirated or twin-turbo pressure plate/clutch setups from 1990 to 1996. The kit includes essential components such as a steel powder-coated adapter plate, pilot bushing adapter, custom steel flywheel, and all necessary mounting hardware.
One important thing to note is that LS conversions can vary depending on the application. While the Z32 LS Conversion Adapter Kit provides a solid foundation, you may still need to make modifications to various components to ensure a successful swap. These components include the driveshaft, shifter linkage, motor mounts, transmission crossmembers, throttle cable, wiring harness, ECU, oil pan, and many others.
The Z33 LS Conversion Adapter Kit
Now, let's shift our focus to the Z33 LS Conversion Adapter Kit, designed for Nissan 350Z enthusiasts looking to combine the power of an LS engine with the durability of the 350Z 6-speed transmission. This adapter kit is specifically tailored to fit transmissions found in 350Z models from 2003 to 2006.
The Z33 LS Conversion Adapter Kit is a game-changer for those seeking a transmission capable of handling the raw power of an LS V8 engine, which can reach up to 700 horsepower. The kit includes essential components like a steel powder-coated adapter plate, hi-torque starter adapter, custom steel flywheel, pilot bushing adapter, and all required mounting hardware.
One standout feature of this kit is the bolt-on flywheel, eliminating the need for adapters or spacer bushings. The 30-pound billet steel flywheel is compatible with any OEM or aftermarket 350Z clutch assembly. Plus, you won't need to modify the transmission itself, saving you time and effort during the swap.
Similar to the Z32 kit, it's important to remember that LS conversions are not one-size-fits-all. Depending on your project, you may need to tweak various components to ensure everything runs smoothly. Elements that may require attention include shifter linkage, motor mounts, driveshaft, transmission crossmembers, front-end accessories, and more.
In summary, LS engine swaps are an exciting way to unlock the potential of your Nissan 300ZX or 350Z. The Z32 and Z33 LS Conversion Adapter Kits from G Force Performance Products provide a solid foundation for your swap, simplifying the connection between LS engines and Nissan transmissions.
Remember that while these adapter kits streamline the process, LS conversions are unique to each application. Be prepared to modify various components to ensure a successful and powerful LS swap. Whether you're tackling a Z32 or Z33 conversion, G Force has your back with quality products designed to make your project a success. So, gear up, get ready, and let the LS power flow!
