Re: Nissan 2.4L engine swap?
My brother did this swap a couple years ago, useing a 86 nissan 720 (Z24) carb. engine. Great swap !! They have two different 5 speeds a short one and a longer one, If you uses the short 5 speed you will not have to move your t-case back and (so no t-case mods needed) (im not sure had to be done with the jack shaft) no tranny tunnel mods needed or no body lift was used, He used the stock rad. with electric fan on it.
The Carb. engines put out around 115hp and the efi engines around 134 hp. the stock wiring can be modified to be used with the Z24, the reverse gear are kinda weak but other then that I love this set up, My brother could easyly break 100 mph in his zuk with the z24 swap with stock gears and 30 " tires. I say go for it !!! hope this helps !!
