no, you will need to use the SR20de FWd tranny. must probably flywheel and clutch also. You must also already know that the engine mount/tranny mount will require custom fabrication.

It will bolt in the engine compartment way easier than the SR swap. but like most of them, youll be on your own. No one here will provide any specific info as wiring. but mostly, its bolt on and with a donor pulsar SE 88-90 youll have most of the part needed to do it !

Putting a turbocharged engine into your B12 IS a major modification. I would have researched a lot more before having bought a motor. You are going to have a tough time from what I see. You are asking questions you wouldn't have needed to ask if you even read a tiny bit of the resources available here and elsewhere on the net.

The easiest way to turbocharge your B12 is to get a GA16DE, drop it in the engine bay (it fits like a glove, no body modification needed), and attach a turbocharger onto a custom exhaust manifold or headers. The stock tranny from the B12 will fit on the GA16, you can use the same flywheel and clutch, so you will not have to do any fajiggling there either. You will need a wastegate, oil feed line, and other turbocharger parts, of course. Also, you will probably need to upgrade your fuel injectors with that from a 2.4 litre Altima or 2.4 litre 240SX to run the turbocharger. You will have plenty of room to fit the turbocharger, but you might want to reduce your engine fans to only one instead of two.

Actually he has an 88 so no, the ga16de wont fit right on. i still think the best bang for the buck is the ca18det. no hassle on turbo fitting or injectors...wiring isnt easy in both case but just to get a pre-turboed engine will save you lots of problem like making the drain hole into the pan ect...plus you get to have an engine ready to take 300hp with upgrades...
