Once i got looking ok,its time for a more powerful reliable power plant,i decited that a KA swap would be the best for me, so the fun began first off finding a good engine with everything,this step took some time but was able to come up with an engine with 90k miles on it out of a wreaked 240sx.Then i started to gather other parts and building motor mounts

Looks like the pan got a little modification done to it. That Titan Hot Wheel in the tool box looks familiar.

This wasn't to bad of a job since ive already done this once to this pickup,after it was wrecked.The front end i just took off was something i picked up at a wrecking yard for cheap,it turned out to be a rusty P.O.S so i found s nicer one.
http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=485&pictureid=3648
The battery tray has a little rust but ill take care of it before it gets paint. hope to have it on and painted by early next week

Well i got a lot done on the to do list,i got layed off last week so now that I don't have the money to work on my pickup I've got the time haha,Funny how that seems to happen. I figured I'd take advantage of the room and put the engine in first then put the front clip back on.http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=485&pictureid=3703 Once the truck is running, ill paint the rest of the truck that same color.Its a newer jeep silver, looks kinda blue is the right lighthttp://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=485&pictureid=3702
It was getting dark right as i was bolting up the trans. Thursday my Electric fuel pump and header wrap should be here.Ive got a apt at the local exhaust shop Friday. Ill keep you posted

http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=486&pictureid=3785

It took awhile to get this part done but turned out awesome and ive onle got 260 into the full exhaust including the cost of the header and Apexi N1 ricer muffler

09-01-2009, 10:32 PM
Also hew is a few more pics of the engine,this is my first time trying out header wrap ive always thought it looked good and i know everyone tells me my header is going to rot out now,Owell i like it and i doubt it will rust out anytime soon.
http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=486&pictureid=3789

This is all ive got done latley ive got a buddy thats back for two weeks from cali he leaves for iraq soon so ive been spending as much of my free time as i can with him before he leaves.But i finally put my 2in drop spindels on so i can turn my torsion bars back up some,also repalced ball joints and shocks.

Alright well sorry for the delay of updates Ive been busy working on other projects.Well i got the front clip painted and on,instead of spot welding it like factory im going to use some bolts prob 1/4in and bolt it back on and seam seal all the seams.but here is some pics
http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=486&pictureid=3896
Cleaned up and painted everything back here
http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=486&pictureid=3897
My Battery tray was pretty rusted and it was going to be 70.00 for a factory replacement, F&@! that so i made something up real quick that will work just fine.Also got the intake tube all mocked up. Idk if ill paint the tube black or silver like the truck??
http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=486&pictureid=3898

Don't worry the wood is just temp. lol Prob wont get much done this weekend Harvest Festival is this weekend and my buddy heads back to cali to get ready for deployment to Iraq.

Looking real good man.... your KA swap is very nice. I like the custom mounts and oil pan modification to clear the girdle.

Did you extend/reroute the oil pick-up tube? What about the dip stick?

I used the rear sump oil pickup tube thats came with the pan i got from david29 just made a new bracket for it.I'm still using the car dip stick with one quart over full it shows on the low mark are the stick. i should be ok i doubt my oil will foam cause my drunk retarted neighbors have a HB that they swapped a turbo'd 240engine in and he runs 2.5 quarts over full :crazy:and has no problems with foaming.And Thanks for the comments youve helped me out alot of getting to where i am now and i thank you for that also!

Well i hung my fenders today to get an idea of where it sits now with the 2in drop spindles.I'm going to crank up the torsion bars a little, this is a little to low my tires are rubbing on my wheel wells
http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=486&pictureid=3915

Nothing new here just another pic of the engine bay, Trying to decide if i should paint my valve cover and intake tube the same silver as the rest of the pickup?? What do you guys think?

Sweet build up man, the swap looks great!! The black valve cover looks clean, I'd say paint the tube black to match.

Hey Everyone Sorry Ive been out of the loop for so long, Got the Truck running & Driving again and i LOVE IT!!! I'm so happy i did the ka24 Swap and I think anyone with a 720 should do the same. Heres a crappy cell pic Its an older picture since it was taken Ive powder coated the valve cover and intake tube black,also have cleaned up all the wiring.
http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=486&pictureid=5385
