So here's an idea that's a Lil different, what I'm getting at is what cars out there would be fun swaps to put an L series into (L20b) or L28.. Etc.

For things newer this won't be the "fast" swap, but I'm sure some of us on here are die hard l series fans.

So whatcha think? L28 into a z31 or z32..
Or an L20b into a BMW E30 or maybe turn it around and put one in a bug or Karmann ghia..
Or either of the two into a fox body mustang? Haha.

And GO

L20B in a 1200, B210 or 310. Maybe a 510 or 521.

 

L28 maybe in an 810 or Maxima so it at least fits but is not a replacement for the VG30 at all. If I was going six cylinder in an S31 or 32 it would be an RB26TT

 

 

Whats a BMW? fox??

Wouldn't an inline 4 stick out the back? You'd need some kind of adapter.

Swap every Nissan V6 into the trash

I’d like to see more use of L28s and L24s.

I have a rebuilt L2.8 on the shelf while I look for a longitudinal Maxima. Other than that, the L series engine is not a good candidate for swapping INTO things...

L into anything Old and Mercedes just to be cheeky. 

Or L into most of the smaller British sports cars. The Japanese motors were far more power efficient and can make way more power because of the vintage racing scene's investment now.
