    Default Fluid Motor Union M45 getting a VK56DE Titan swap

    Hey everyone - Im the proud owner of the Fluid Motor Union M45 featured here: stanceworks.com/2011/08/late-nights/

    Well as a turn of fate...the car gods and road hazard took out the oil pan. Im in the midst of doing a Titan motor swap - 5.6 litter engine. Ill post on here as well as Nico Forums. Hope you all enjoy. The cars gonna have some serious power

    Thought everyone would enjoy a play by play on my Titan VK56DE swap into the Fluid Motor Union M45 (2006).

    Long story short...car bottomed out on a major road hazard and cracked the oil pan....and engines without oil equal carnage.

    The Goal:
    2012 Titan VK56DE with 8300 miles
    JWT Cams and springs (TBD - likely C8/S2 or some other combination)
    Utilize Infiniti M45 ECU with Uprev to tune to larger engine
    M45 VIAS manifold with MA Motorsports VK56 to Vk45 intake manifold adaptors.
    102mm Nick Williams Throttle Body
    5" custom Aluminum intake
    Retaining existing Long tube FMU 1.75" primary headers
    Retaining existing FMU 2.5" stainless to 3" exhaust.

    Trans:
    Titan Bell housing
    Titan Edge racing High stall
    Trans-go Shift Kit
    Tru-cool 40k trans cooler.

    Ive got a bunch of photos - will update as I go along.

    What will need to be done to get the VK56 in the M45:
    Custom motor mounts
    Custom oil pan
    verify VTC cam timing is the same between both engines
    Custom accessory mounts (must use the Titan accessories because the belt is a 7 rib belt).

    The Damage:




    Engine pull:






    Vk45 Re505A and Titan Bell housing- Fun fact - the Titan Bell housing is 5/8" longer and the engine will need to be mounted 5/8" higher to center the crank in the same spot as the VK45DE.





    Engine bracket fabrication and jig on VK45:



    VK56 w/ brackets coming to life:





    Biggest technical difference so far - The signal for the Cam Sensor will need to be inverted so that the pickup reads exactly the opposite for the VVT (variable Valve Timing) on the intake cams.



    Cutting up the VK56 Titan oil pan housing - the sump needs to be moved to the front to clear the crossmember - much more to show here later:

    Mods. Can you please move this to the build area. I posted in the wrong section.
