I'm doing the VK56 swap and I'm taking kebler2005's idea and making a to do list
I should have pics of the engine and transmission in the next couple of days from Driven Desire since they are ordering the parts and having them shipped there since they will be doing the install. The list below is what they gave me on the parts that I need. Exhaust selection was mine and I heard it on another vk and thought it sounded sweet. I'll update the first page as items come in.

Finally got some engine/trans pics from Driven Desire! the more costly parts are out of the way
It's from a 2010 Nissan Titan (under 120k miles)

Also, dropping off my Xterra tomorrow to get the 2.5" lift installed so should have pics of that in the next couple of days!

Might want to throw some paint on the section of coil bucket that was trimmed for the UCAs, added precaution against rust. Lift looks great!
