Welcome to V8Altima.com!!! V8altima.com was created to show the world the progress of Nick Moy’s 2002 Nissan Altima from being converted from a 2.5ltr front wheel drive car to a V8 rear wheel drive car, powered by the potent VK56DE V8 found in the Infiniti QX56, Nissan Titan and Nissan Armada.
The idea came about while attending the E-Shift BBQ in 2009 and the discussion came about with the Altima’s engine platform. It needed to be upgraded and was lacking big time in POWER! What engine to use? RB series….2JZ…. Sr20DET….. Then Ernie Manansala brought up the VK56DE from a Nissan Titan and the discussion went wild!
Since then alot of research was done about the engine and it was decided it was going to be the engine that will be finding its way into the L31 Altima Chassis. So within the next couple of months stay tuned to V8altima.com for the latest updates and details!
