So I got a 95 nissan extend cab pick up it's just a roller. But I just picked up a 95 infinity q45 its rear wheel drive 4.5 v8 auto. The motor is nissan built. How much trouble you guy think it will be to put that drivetrain in the pickup

If the original engine is a 4 cyl KA25E, then installing a V8 will require fabrication work to make it fit. New engine wiring harness and ECU will be required along with fabrication of a new exhaust system. If your state requires emission standards, you'll have to make your setup emission compliant.

I saw a picture of one that had that swap years ago, so it's do-able. It's a tight fit and I have no idea how much work it was to accomplish the swap. Wiring Specialties can help you out with the wiring conversion. I'm just glad that I'm not doing it! ;) If you Google "D21 Hardbody VH swap," you should get a number of hits.
