I have an old 95 Nissan hardbody pickup. It’s the rwd 5 spd manual and I want to turn it into a sleeper car/truck and make it way faster then what it is now. My first thought is obviously an engine and tranny swap but what would you guys recommend for something like that? And if it is an engine swap what engine should I get?
It's been six months, have you decided yet what to do? With my 97, I was dreamin of a 5.3 LS swap, BUT, by the time I added up the bill on everything I needed to make this a stable, steady, daily, driver the cost killed me, (15k cheap 25k done right). SO I decided to rebuild the 2.4L with only 55-65hp increase, BUT, it should be real reliable and there is not a lot of modifications that need to be done and no turbo, not to mention it's a heck of a lot cheaper, (6k-8k when done).Peace, Honest.
