Hi matt. Is it even possible to replace the engine from one car to another, especially different brands?

A better choice would be an M50 engine out of a later BMW

Matt, why the hell would you put a POS Nissan engine in the best car on the planet?? Go with Crash on this one put a newer 6 in, I have done this several times and it is easy and a great upgrade.

Happy Hunting
