I'm pretty sure some version of the LS V8 has been in just about every single model ever made, but I think he's asking if anyone has put the 5.8L V8 from the new M Infiniti into a Z.

This engine is the VK56VD Nissan VK engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This particular version of this engine is basically brand new in 2011 models. I'm almost 100% certain no one has had time to swap this into a 350Z. If they were going to, you're more likely to find it in a 370 this early in the game.

I lied, here's a Z with a VK V8 engine in it.

My Vk56 Swapped 350z - Page 4 - MY350Z.COM Forums

The VK has been aroudn a while, just that the version thats bored otu to 5.6L is rather new.

No kidding. I think rednecks dream of cramming Chevy V8's into anything with wheels. I think the V8 swap is responsible for more cars being butchered and hacked up, than all other mods combined.

Yup, gotta agree there Ronin, I groan every time I see a 240Z hacked up for a 350 or LS1. The Titan V8 has been installed, there are a few people who have posted details. If the M is getting a big V8, that'll probably be a better engine to use as it will likely have a power focused curve rather than torque.
