rb20det swap in my 88 300zx n/a

Has anyone ever done this swap before? I'm wanting to do an rb20det swap in my auto 88 300zx non turbo. Will it fit inside my engine bay and what are the major fabrications I need to do if there are any? I heard that it's an inline 6 and they're longer so would it hook up to my driveshaft? Any links would be appreciated.

RB25DET swap in an 88' Z31?

Anyone ever conquered this before? I was reading up on the RB20's and found out that someone said the #6 cylinder is weak and likely to go out. So i've decided on the RB25. Anyone ever swapped this before? How difficult?

VG30DETT swap in 88' Z31?

Just getting ideas.. I've heard i'd need a custom driveshaft for the RB motors.. But would someone need a custom driveshaft built for a Z31 for the VG30DETT motor/trans?

350 z31 swap

I was just wanting to know if i'd need a different drive shaft to service a 350 chevy swap for my z31. If I do, what's the cheapest route and where should I look?

Wow, search my friend. there is no point in us re-writing the same thing 20,000 times. Unless the trans bolted to the swapped engine (highly unlikely) the driveline length and output shaft from the trans is almost always different.

Good GOD! Why do I get the feeling this person is 16-18 years old, it's his first car, and he'll NEVER do any of these things?

I'm 21. It's not my fault I don't know where to start. I've had 8 cars. Btw AZ-Bum, how about pulling your head out of your *** and try being nice sometime. You're literally a freaking moron.

You're 21... not 10. You somehow found this site (I assume by SEARCHING), yet when it comes to typing simple phrases into GOOGLE or the ZDRIVER SEARCH BAR (i.e. "Z31 RB25" or "Z31 VG30DETT"), it's just too big of a task.

How do we know you won't ever do what swap? You went from RB20 to RB25 to VG30DETT to Chevy 350, with the determining factor being if the DRIVE SHAFT needs to be custom.

We are here to help everyone as much as we can, but we CAN'T help those who can't help themselves.

You don't know anything about cars:

I have answered your questions more than once (nicely):
Gas Gauge issue: https://www.zdriver.com/forums/300zx...working-37693/
Camber question: https://www.zdriver.com/forums/300zx...t-stock-37852/
Adding a turbo to an NA motor: https://www.zdriver.com/forums/300zx...tomatic-38010/

You keep asking the same question over and over and over (I'm not posting the quotes for all the motor swap threads you've started that all have the same answer).

And I'm the one who has to pull my head out of my ***? Seriously?

You never answered my question:
