you can always mount the intercooler on top of the engine like the WRX. but then you'll need a coustom hood. or cut your stock hood the install a hood scoop of your chose.
Pics required for proof. Also, did you get the trans too?i have a complete 5.6 from a titan waiting in my garage to go in my 08 frontier. big project havent found time to do it yet.
got it for 2k wrecked titan and has 17k miles on it.
i got a deal but i just havent gotten into the headache of a swap for the weekend, so im putting it off for a year ,
Isn't our adapter plates different thou? Also our gearing in our trans?the motor bolts up to my exisiting trans, and i will deff get some pics up here in a week or so, its about an hour away at my sisters house.
X2and here I though it was old news that the 5.6 bolts right up to our autos (since they're the same tranny as in the titan)...
pretty sure it was covered in one of the previous threads about the swap on the X that the factory did.
We got a bit off topic...but actually...holy $hit this thread is old, no way in hell is a vg30dett gonna fit in the engine bay of a gen 1 frontier, hell the vg33e is a tight sqeeze. that being said did he ever swap it in? a vq35 from a 01-04 pathy woulda been better.
i thought we talked about a vk swap in a 2nd gen frontier before like 5 times?
yeah but the turbos aren't bolted on the engine yet, thats gonna be a tight sqeeze may have to "modify" the wheel well to get the turbo to fit properly. if nissan didn't detune the vg33 from the factory with 8.9 compression and small camshafts, and got rid of the 2nd set of cats for non cali trucks, these wouldn't be half bad engines, anyway a 300zx engine wouldn't be bad but say goodbye to the low end tq.We got a bit off topic...but actually...
Its a WD21 pathfinder...but you get my point. Bolts right in.
