Is it possible to take a 2004 Sentra 1.8, and take motor, tranny, suspension from 2004 Nissan Sentra SE R Spec V?

I gave a buddy of mine my 2004 Spec v to turn into an enduro car. Car dominated 3 of the 4 races. Race 4 someone got jealous and hooked him into the wall. There was a bit of internal buckling.

Found a clean body 1.8 L locally and the thought was to swap parts from the Spec V to the 1.8 L body.

Is this possible?

The standard '04 1.8 liter engine is a QG18DE, while the '04 SE R Spec V engine is a 2.5 L QR25DE. We're talking about two different engines. You would probably have to rewire the engine harness along with a different ECU. The sensor connectors may be different. I don't know if the transmissions use the same bolt pattern. Also you'll have to look at the motor mount placement to see if they match. If anybody here knows for sure, please chime in.

It's the same body, so it should be doable. You will need the harness and ECM, as well.

I also have the same thing going on i have a 06 se-r spec v with a bad body and a 05 1.8 with a immaculate body plan is to keep 1.8 appearance (badging, 16 alloy wheels) but have the heart of a se-r but I'm looking for as much information as possible before diving into it

Just like I suggested to BIGce555; you would probably have to rewire the engine harness along with a different ECU, so it should work. You might want to start a conversation with him for additional info.
