KA24DE, if your gonna do that, do the SR20DET (TurboCharged 2.0L). Uses all the same shit but about 50 more hp stock. 200hp/200tq stock

it's really long. hard to make fit in a sammi. the int shaft would be about 4 inches from joint to joint

Just asking I might be able to buy the whole car for $300, been rolled, could you make a new outputshaft that would bolt right to my transfercases? would it have a some kind of slip yolk or what haven't looked at it, thought someone might know. How many horse is the non turboed one?

don't mean to sound stupid but what the fuck is a l20b?

I had a 240sx motor & trans for my Sami,after lots of measuring I
decided it would not be worthwhile.motor is to long,unless you want
to carve the firewall and tunnel up or relocate rad to the rear.
What year 240? single cam prolly 140hp,twin cam 160hp.

l20b is an early Datsun engine,used to be a popular transplant for 510's

SR20DET's rock[36]
