Altima to Frontier Engine Swap?

1557 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Possum Willy
Need to know, what is the difference between the ka2.4de in the Frontier and the Altima? I've heard various things but can never seem to confirm.
Is there anything that keeps the Altima engine from being used in the Frontier?

Altima is FWD, Frontier is RWD so externally motor and transmissions are completely different.

Back when I had a 1989 Mazda MX6 turbo, there was a guy that swapped turbo internals to a B2200 and made a custom exhaust. The engines were the same, just one was FWD and other was RWD. The power went from 85 hp @ 4,500 rpm · 118 lb-ft @ 2,500 rpm to 145 hp @ 4,300 rpm · 190 lb-ft @ 3,500 rpm so must of been a kick in the pants to drive.
