I think you are talking about a rb26dett mckinney motor sports has just engines starting at 6500 the price goes up to 8500 for full swap stuff i am pretty sure this is not a clip. I belive you would need a clip which would be more expensive. Then you have the swap custom fab, misc other things. I would say atleast in the 15,000- 20,000 area if done right could be much more. If your want awd nissan they made a sr20det awd turbo car or see if you can get an old skyline imported or save time money headache buy and evo or sti.

The drive train is in no way bolt in. Youd be spending thousands on custom fabrication of parts to get the AWD drivetrain to fit in

Once again, McKinney Motorsports can choke and die. McKinney be damned! I'll say it again: ZeroLift AutoLabs sells R33 RB26DETT with transmission, ECU, and LSD for $3750. Not $6500, not $8500, and certainly not $15,000-25,000.
For speculation (retarded, I know, but I'm not planning on doing this, DrifterDan is) let's walk through this swap on paper. Buy the ZeroLift kit for, $4,000 shipped. Buy an RB25DET transmission for $750 shipped from Fueled Performance in Arizona. One piece driveshaft $300 also from Fueled Performance. Torsen helical limited slip differential, $500 shipped. Pour into 240SX, stir for 3-5 minutes. Connect 255lph fuel pump, connect ECU wires to transmission, turn key, shred tires through 3rd gear.
This isn't that complicated. If I had $5,000, I would do this swap into my 240SX and prove that it can be done. ZeroLift Autolabs also performs the RWD RB26DETT swap. It's not that far removed from any of the other swaps, just the 4WD is impossible. The front driveshafts don't line up anywhere near the 240SX wheels.
With RWD, I am firm believer that this swap shouldn't be regarded as "impossible," "impractical," or by any means "impracticable." The RB26DETT is the unquestionable Father God of the JDM Nissan turbo engines. If you have $5,000 and the dream of a 320hp 240SX, you CAN make it happen.

I think it would be super impractial to make a 320hp awd 240sx like joel said tons of custom fab and all kinds of kinks to work out, i would bet for certain it would cost at least 10grand even if u do alot of the work. I like nissan but it would be easier to make it rwd.

RB26DETT with the AWD drivetrain will cost around $16,000 installed.

Actually Laser's I believe only came w/ the 1.8 L engine, unlike the talon and eclipse which came w/ the 1.8, 2.0, and 2.0 turbo (gsx, and tsi)...but this isn't a dsm forum, so lets drop this subject... As for the kid w/ the headers...don't be lazy, start your own damn thread, and as for the heat issue, you probably don't have the heat guard on anymore, so therefore your engine bay will get a little bit hotter than normal...

Now for what this thread was started for... You can do it, but there is def. custom fab, but it seems that someone about me here (says 16,000 installed) he seems to know pretty well how much it would cost... so talk to him, but it'll def. take some custom fabrications, and a hell of a lot of time...

I have headers and 2.5" all the way back and it's fine. I would only go 3" if you're turbo.

4WD 240SX is amost impossible to do yourself. It just doesn't fit. Completely different chassis. CV joints are just pivoting joints. A control arm and a driveshaft are two completely different things, but I think you're thinking they're the same.
4WS is not that hard of a swap. Get a HICAS pump and belt, all the lines, and the rear steering gear. It's easiest to just get an S13 VLSD rearend with Hicas. It's not too difficult, just really expensive, and you won't be so good at drifting afterwards.
