Question Swap

Hi Guys And Ladies,
I Am Back On Business Let The Games Begin. I Have A 1985 Nissan 4 Cylinders 8 Plugs Z24 Body In Excellent Condition 5 Speeds, The Bad Thing Is The Motor So I Decided That I Don't Want To Mess With That Motor And I Want To Put Another Engine. My ? Is Should I Replace The Engine With The Same Z24 I Found One With Low Miles On It Or Is Possible To Put A Bigger Engine With Out Swamping To Many Parts Maybe With A V6 Chevy Engine Not Sure Open For Suggestions
Thank You,thank You

It will be far easier to just replace the stock motor. there are no swap kits, and only a few various parts available that are even close. If you swap motor/drivetrain, it will have to all be custom and likely $$$, unless you can do it yourself. In which case you can do whatever you want.

Yea, even to go with a Nissan V6 you would need a new tranny with it, and anll the compiuters, sensors and wiring for both.

The 1985 200sx with Z24 engine offered a Turbo (I sused to have one of these little bullets). I would put one of those engines in it, everything should plug right in, except for the ecu, but you would need that off the donor vehicle anyway.

Send a message via AIM to XterraGuy
Guy 'round here has an 84 King Cab that he's going to drop in the engine and transmission from a non-turbo 300ZX of the same era w/ some sort of divorced t-case, the 5-link disc rear axle from a 94 Pathfinder, and an as-yet decided SFA in front (looks lke a Patrol C200 if current plans work out, D44 otherwise). Engine and tranny are nearly overhauled, should start the nitty-gritty soon enough.
