Would that be different if you used a RWD QR/head?

Yeah I think the rwd qr has a different block as from the ones I've seen at the junk yards. So the rwd head might not swap on to a fwd block.

Updates:) so the motor is in and the wiring is oh so very close. Just need to hook up headlights and brake lights and then that's it for wiring. Intake manifold still needs to be cured in oven to withstand heat. Need to hook up map. Make mount for it. Exhast manifold needs to be connected to rest of exhaust. Finish cooling system. Bleed clutch. And she should be ready to try and fire it up after thats done. Well sounds like alot to get done cuz it is. :) but ive had lots of extra time to work on it so it's going quick.

Looking good.

I sure hope those zip ties holding the radiator are a temporary solution. :P
Enjoy The Ride!

Hey Dropoff, quick question. Why did you build your own intake mani? I use to drive a Specv Sentra and at the time there were no companies that offered an after market one. All the companies that had tried failed to have one to produce better numbers, the stock on just flowed so smooth. Not trying to bash your work it looks great, just wanted to know if the stock one did not fit ? I think the swap is awesome, that motor is a beast with all the TQ it has. I would love to see it run.

I was going to use stock one and try to reverse it so it pointed the right way and not into fire wall. But it was still to high to clear hood. So this was something I always wanted to try. Hope that answers your question. I hope it flows good but won't know for sure until she runs I mad sure every thing is smooth so it will flow good. :)

Just rode in a sr20det 510 today :):):)):):):):)):):):). Oh so nice.
Friend just bought it from las Vegas. It's quick. I hope mine is as quick but in all honesty thinking it won't :( oh well I'd get in too much trouble with that much power :) But the qr25 with it's nice torque curve will be a nice daily driver plenty for cruising around and ripping up the hill to my house :)

Will you be writing up your installation for others to follow? Make for an interesting DQ article once it's up and running, especially dealing with the wiring.

Sure, few people will follow your exact route and making manifolds and such, but as one of the first, it'll help give people some idea if they want to go that route.
