Just a general question/conversation. I'm currently in college so this definitely can't happen anytime soon, but, I've been researching engine swaps lately, mostly 2JZ swaps.

A lot of people say that if I wanted to swap engines in my 2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R, I should use a VQ35. Would a 2JZ even fit in a Sentra? I don't know much about engines so it would be cool to have a conversation about it!

Have a good day everyone!

It would be quick, that's for sure. It'll be a lot of work and I don't know if anyone has done a swap like this before. It would be neat to see.

Even though possible as stated above, it'll be tremendous work and a lot of converting being that is it not a Nissan engine + RWD... Like everyone said KA/SR/QR/VQ

You could already boost the QR though and get the same numbers stock of a VQ35DE. (Treadstone Turbo Kit + Treadstone/BRM Exhaust + UpRev Tunning) A swap would still be a pain to put in the VQ in the B16 chassis even though it has been done, I believe.

Now, if your B16 had an MR20 in it... you have very little options for power, so a swap would probably be more obvious than the QR. (IMO)

I might just turbocharge the QR25 that is already in it. Just a small turbo, enough to get a little jolt. Probably a Turbonetics 50 trim? Only issue is that I dont know if the engine can stand a turbocharger, or my transmission for that matter. Sadly auto and shifts hard into 2nd, I feel like it would blow up XD

Since you were considering a swap... you should consider doing minor re-building just to make sure it can stand the power (even though the stock block should be able to handle low PSI boost without sleeving) and do a tranny swap. 6MT. ;)

The QR can handle pretty decent amounts of boost in stock form. Add a cooler to the trans and stay on top of your fluid changes and you'll be okay for a while.

I might do a little rebuild! Never crossed that thought, but it is a sensible idea. Plus I would 100% love the 6 speed manual over this 4 speed auto. The owners before this really didn't do anything with the car, the spark plugs were like sawed down nails. It probably needs some work on the inside.

On the B16 front many have boosted their QR's without the need of a rebuild. If you want to feel safe about boost incase you feel the stock block won't hold do some minor changes, nothing to radical but, as it was mentioned the block should hold it's own. A 6MT would be more fun but the automatic can handle it's own for a bit as was stated about the tranny cooler(s) and fluid changes. Amsoil and Royal are good choices to reduce friction and temps.

I own a 2004 nissan sentra ser spec v, and I was wondering if a 2jz motor would be able to fit. Cause I would like to put that motor into the car but I don't know if it would be able to fit and I need to know before I spend all that mone6 for a 2jz.

I did a sbc350 in a Pininfarina once for a couple of American Airlines pilots that thought it was a neat idea and it did not turn out nearly so well as the DeTomaso Pantera 351C did at all. The setup ran well, they just picked the wrong car to do it in and money was NO object. We at the family garage took them at their word and they alone paid for that garage to stay open for close to a year.

That swap was the one from h-ll.
