I have always loved the Nissan Hardbody. I was wondering if any body has ever done any kind of engine swap with one. I know some Pick-ups came with a v6. Anybody ever done a Maxima Engine swap? I also know Nissan has a very durable inline 6 too. would one fit in a Nissan Truck.
I know I could go to a NISSAN Forum, but I was just checking here first.

Haven't even seen one for quite awhile... needless to say I don't know much about them.

There is a Nissan that I work on from time to time.

All I can really tell you about it is there are two belts and the PS pump pulley goes on both ways, but only fits correctly one way.

Oh I know my way around the Nissan motor. It was the pickup to get around here. Nissan was one of the first 4 cylinder motors to have two spark plugs per cylinder, for me anyway. That z24 motor was dependable as he'll. Compared to a Toyota, everything is more complex.
