Postby datsunissan » Tue Apr 24, 2012 5:28 pm

ok so i started doing this project about 2 weeks ago..i work 30 hours a week and go to school so its a slow progress but i want everything done right so im taking my time. im doing pretty much a complete resto on the truck..repair rust, paint, suspension, motor swap (from a 95 240sx) and so on.

here is what it looked like back in sept 2011 when i bought if for 1300.
Image

old z24
Image

pulled (4/10/2012
Image

new motor ($350 with new clutch and short shifter)
Image

pulled the lights, radiator, old tranny and sorted out the old wires (time to start preping)
Image

this is it so far but i try to work on it a little each day. ill be updating you guys throughout the whole project and im sure ill run into some problems and questions along the way that hopefully someone on here can help me out with

You shouldn't have an issue with turbo clearance. Ask NIS 720 suggestions he has a really clean set up like you. I'm pretty sure if you use a jgsmanifolds you will have plenty of clearance.
