Altima to Frontier Engine Swap?

1556 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?

THe long blocks are most likely the same. The intake/exhaust manifold are different. You can get the block and swap over all of your bits.
I'm almost willing to wager that the block castings are different to allow for mounting locations, coolant inlets/outlets, and for fitment.
