Anyone ever tried or heard of using a Nissan 4 cyl. 2.4L engine in a Sami? Looking for options and any feedback would help.

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 !!

Sounds interesting but let's be honest here: for that HP gain, save yourself the time and headaches and do the 16 valve 1.6L. I can't personally speak from experience but the 16 valve looks like it's plenty. I'm doing the 4.3L now and it's a PITA. Just my opinion. I'm sure you'd be happy though with that 2.4L [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Nissan 2.4L engine swap?

sidetracker, i know the nissan z24 engine is fairly common but how durable is it? does the shorter trans you mentioned have a hydrolic or cable operated clutch? i really like the part about not moving the trans back. i know the 1600 16 valve engine seems to be everyones favorite, but the efi wiring and replacement electronics can be really spendy. not to mention that efi electronics do NOT like water at all.

i might have to look into the z24 engine/trans some more i guess. i bet a weber would work nicely on the carbed engine too after some re-jetting.
