Hey everyone, first time post so take it easy on me if I'm in the wrong place. I recently purchased a 1982 Nissan Bluebird FWD Manual. I am interested in doing an engine swap but am totally clueless. What engine would work for me? Im not looking for anything crazy just something fun. Picture of car below.

I believe your car is a U11 series. If so, then according to Wikipedia, your station wagon was offered with an optional 1809 cc CA18ET/DET turbo I4 engine. What engine is in your car? It'll be nice if you could find a front clip of the turbo, then you'll have everything from the firewall to the front bumper to do your conversion.

If you're lucky enough to find just a CA18ET/DET engine by itself, then your work begins; does your transmission bolt up to the block; what are the wiring changes; does the exhaust system need to be modified to bolt up to the turbo, etc. It'll be a nice project to keep you busy.

If your swap is successful, you should have some nice additional power increase.
