I would LOVE to start on a V8 build on my truck, but no one will support me because they say I should drive it how it is, buuut it can't get out of its own way half the time, and its killin my gas mileage because of how I have to floor it everytime I am at a stop light to keep up with the traffic. Be better off getting atleast 18mpg with a 5.0 and diff. gears. But I suppose they're right, kinda young, but one day I plan on doing a swap of my own. Hell I live right next to a Lestors auto salvage.

I would suggest not doing a major project like that to your only car/daily driver. that's only asking for trouble.

I have a 93 with the 2.3 liter, it gets (currently) 20-22 city and 25-26 highway.

Did you read any of the posts so far?

The OP said: "so i need the front end and rear end R34 skyline conversion kit"

That answers your second question. And the entire rest of the discussion answered your first question, though again, the OP answered that, too: "the reason i didnt go with an actual skyline is becuz id rather not bother and wait huge amounts of time to get one shipped here and the cost of a 1999 skyline alone is more then i was willing to spend on the base of this project."

look you guys are willing to do that go for it, something to consider, is were i come frm care parts cost about3 to4 times more then were you are so when we pay the cash we don't want **** ups, so we stick to the known generally, it is achievable but i still refuse to admit these rides are achievable to ceate by your average car enthusiaist, not because of money but because of know how, of cause there are always the exception to the rules but generally NO

Then you need to hang around with hot rodders in your area, not ricers. the know how is there, as much Down Under as it is here.

And, you "refuse to admit" these rides are achievable by your average car enthusiast? ALL the ones I've posted have been by AVERAGE car enthusaists in their garages, INCLUDING the LS1 powered Prelude I linked to (a 20 year old kid doing his first fabrication project!). Are you TRYING to prove that you can be the most closed minded individual on the boards? I mean, I post facts and you REFUSE to believe any of it? That's just RETARDED.

Grow up and LEARN something, for Christ's sake.

guess what is it achievable for most runners to go to the olympics and be a 100 metre sprinter, NO

Is it possible for for most car enthusiasts to do a total fabrication, NO not really

but there are always the except to the rules, what you have done is pointed out a few exceptions
thats all
