Its always empty
Its a long debating topics there are different school of thoughts all over the world, even on different Z forums like hybridZ its all about swap regardless of which engine you are using but then some like JNC people like to keep it i the family. When I started mine it was a bareshell only wish would had original engine but wasn't there, but as the car will always be Nissan S30/Z so main engine should have been Nissan was my priority, I guess 2J is more famous here in dubai then anywhere else as easiest and strongest platform to make a death machine and see lots of S30/S31 getting it installed but honestly those cars dont last long are just for seasonal fun.
For me I can stand swapping different company engines just to make the car run while you know there are always some options.I removed my current RB25 and was looking for A NA V6/V8 setup and toyota 1UZFE was the best option but then again went for a diffuclt route of using VQ30DET just to keep it nissan.
This was mine when I got it
