The vq35 has one awards but even a honda s2k beats a 350z
it is alot of capacity for such little torque and power
vq35de should be making 400hp stock, the vq37dd at least 430hp.
Ford V6 is doing better in heavier bodies.
The vg has that retro look and nice torque band for what it is.
I would rather go non-nissan than go to a vq35de
eg. Audi or VW VR32 or 36 they are super compact engines
and lighter than the VQ at 143kg fully dressed.
Problem is making an adaptor for a nissan box or better
the world class t5 s-10 stumpy or tremec.

2474 lb vs 3370 lb Miata is more than 25% lighter curb weight than a 350Z. Now what happens when you put that VQ in a Datsun 1200 like Kuni did?

Don't forget the engineering requirements for registration. If you use an engine made before lead free laws were introduced, 1/7/86, you'll have an easier time passing the emissions tests. VG?

Yes for those in heavily-regulated states like California the year of the engine is important

No worries here, our 1200s are in states that do not require testing or certification. Hawaii has a yearly "safety testing" to make sure the lights, tires and window tint are safe. Washington state where the ute is only tests cars (for emission compliance) that are newer than 25 years old, WA has no safety or registration tests (WA has only 7 million people so no need for a lot of regulation)
