Hey everyone, I decided to be a dumbass and blow up my previous KA, so I’m trying to slap a new KA in there. I found a good deal on a KA24DE out of a 2002 Nissan Frontier(which is RWD) and i was wondering if i’d have to do any modification to it to make it fit in my ‘91 s13 coupe.

You didn't say what type of transmission was in your s13. If one is an M/T and the other one is an A/T, then you'll have to install a "pilot bushing" into the rear of the crankshaft for a M/T. Likewise, you'll have to install a "pilot converter" into the rear of the crankshaft for an A/T. When installing the new engine, use all the original outer engine components from the old s13 engine. Other then that, the new engine should just slip right in.

Does your new engine have a "pilot converter"; if so, then you can use the "pilot bushing" from your old engine. However I would recommend that you buy a new bushing; two things to consider: an old bushing may have a lot of excessive wear or they are very difficult to remove even when using the proper tool.
