I’d love to watch that from the driver’s seat, there’s no way it’d get old. I’m not sure I’d go for this exact arrangement but its still a great solution. The VH4XDE motors are real gems; high revving and smooth. If you aren’t dead set on 500+ horsepower (an LS), a VH45DE + an n/a 300ZX transmission will have your 240 running on 8 cylinders for less than $3k if you want to be cheap with the necessary bell housing adapter, pedal box, etc. I really enjoyed daily driving my Y33 Q45 and always wondered what that lovely V8 would be like mated to a manual transmission in a lighter car. Definitely a missed opportunity on Nissan’s part! If there’s a track car/back road bomber build in my future this season, I could definitely get behind a very clean 96-98 240 with this swap... that wouldn’t even involve finding a manual... oh no I like this idea a LOT
