A friend of mine have a 4-door hatchback '85 Stanza. What's the chassis? And what parts can be used on it for upgrades? The motor's dead, and he's thinking about putting an SR20DE in it. Will it fit?

I am surprised the original CA20 is dead. They were one tough engine.

Thanks for responding. :)

Actually, it seems that coolant is leaking into the engine/oil or something like that. Either case, he seems to be FOR replacing the motor.

So only the CA series will fit? Darn. How about if he replaces the tranny as well?

How much HP did that CA20 make, anyways?

We are a large nissan dealer in New Orleans.
The chassis is a T11.
As for putting a SR20DE engine into this vehicle, it could possibly fir but we are unsure about how you would mount it.

The mounting issue would relate to what transmission you would use, and if the factory crossmember and front mount would be in proper position.

Anything is possible, but this car is generally not worth it.

It would be very costly in all senses of the word.

Best of Luck.
