    interesting, theres a guy i know over here in the UK doing a very similar transplant, not sure how far he is with it, although mounting the engine is never the problem, its making the exhaust manifolds/headers fit around the steering column thats the main problem with v8 nissans, however, its been done a few times in s14 shells so i cant see a reason why its not possible in an s13 shell :)

    look forward to the progress :)

    doing a v8 in a bimmer has the same problems, because the 3series front legs are so narrow, S chassis much better. imagine, a bimmer v8 cannot come out from the bay down, only upwards lifted or forward if cutted. they doing custom headers to fit and not crossing the steering, so its less job to fit in a nissan :) bimmers also suffer cause of the front oil pan and fr mounted steering, S chassis once again an easier and better solution frankly, the 5er more similar.

    As you see on this picture engine and gearbox are in the place along with headers and steering rack is on the place with column and its working ,the headers do not make problem to steering they are slight modified at the end where it come two in one ,all sits just well ,the engine is just 15mm above the bridge ,we have done 30mm spacers on the chassis to lower the bridge and to reduce tunnel modification !!
