After releasing the first image of the GT-R powered Nissan Juke-R yesterday, a video documenting the install of the twin-turbo V6 powerplant is a bit anticlimactic.

Still, the Juke-R has created a lot of buzz (it’s almost as though it was designed exactly for such a purpose…) and most anyone who might get excited about such a project is certain to enjoy some technical babble about making the swap, not to mention a gallery of pics showing just how tight a fit the big engine is in such a small space. So enjoy.

And yes, we realize Nissan says this is video three and not video four, but they also called the last video #3.
