I was wondering would it be easy to swap a ka24de engine into the 89 240sx???? would there be some customization involved or would it fit right in without removing the ac????!!!!! please get back to me on this topic ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
is it is never easy to swap an engine, it takes a great deal of patience, and a good deal of labor as well, not like putting Legos together or anything. So if you plan on doing an engine swap you should prepare yourself for quite a task. As far as fitting, I do believe the ka24de does fit into the 89 240sx, although don't hold me to that as I am a beginner in mechanics, and know even less about imports, but I figured I'd tell ya what I can.
it should fit right in, the only difference in the two engines is that the 89's engine is a 12 valve while the engine ur installing is a 16 valve. And if the sr20det can bolt right in i'm sure that can
