i was on swapjdm.com and saw a bluebird SR20 turbo for $1700. sounds like a good idea and project. starting to get a little bored. i understand the money and time involved with this swap. all i ask is..... turbo or sr20det swap? $4,000 for the turbo or $1700 for motor, tranny, and ecu. + some other parts. plus i keep hearing something about modifying the oil pan in order for the bluebird to fit?

Go for the motor swap... evan though there is more involved because you have the ga motor.. If you where trying to turbo charge a sr20 it is a different story.. Evan then I like the motor swap idea better because of the oil squirters the det comes with... check out www.jgycustoms.com you can get a faily good deal on a gti-r motor there... It has a bigger turbo and more hourse power then the bluebird.

thanks for the input. yeah swapjdm.com also has the gti-r motor for $2100 with everything. (motor,tranny, and ecu) that seems to be a pretty good deal from what ive seen. my only question is, i thought that those had came outta AWD cars. could i get the gti-r motor with the bluebird tranny or is it the same thing?

why does everybody keep saying that it is so much harder for a sr20t to a GA. isnt it bout the same? look at this list and let me know if i miss anything:

motor
tranny
ecu
SE-R axles
wiring harness
SE-R radiator
SE-R guages (plus boost gage, ect.)
larger fuel pump
engine mounts

(plus, performance parts. LW flywheel, clutch...etc)

a lot of money but it is worth it...

its just cheaper and less labor to go from an SR20DE to a DET since most of the components will match up from the start...

do you NEED ser gauges?
nope, but you may need to get your speedometer re-calibrated as the gearing is different. A tach is very useful as well as boost gauge, and air fuel ratio meter. But before all of that happens, a turbo timer should be the first type of meter you should invest in to save the turbo. Sure I have a B13, but I'm very sure that there is no difference between my ga16 to det swap in either car. Well, very little difference anyways.

no because your tranny is still fwd sr20de. se-r axles do the trick

i'm a bit confused... i got a fwd sentra (b14) -- i'm looking into swapping ga16 to GTi-R SR20DET from swapjdm.com --- It comes w/ ECU, Engine, and Tranny..... Would I need to buy the SE-R Axles also? Treat me as if i'm 6. this would be my first swap!!!

the bluebird and gti-r kits come with awd trannies. u have to get an se-r tranny. u need the se-r axles also. not sure if the gti-r ecu works. that is why it is so much easier if u have an se-r to begin with.
